These files do not have copyright notices:
To release a project unambiguously under the GPL, all non-trivial
files (usually anything above 10-15 lines) should carry a copyright
Also, images should have a README with a short copyright notice, see
details (or the Emacs repository where it is actually done).
Ok we'll fixe all that as described in the ticket you opened.
Not a licensing problem in a strict sense, but relicensing Gajim under
"GPLv3 only" (as opposed to GPLv3+) has some inconvenient
consequences, like contacting all the authors for the next license
upgrade. This already causes trouble for "GPLv2 only" projects which
cannot obtain such a relicensing permission from all the contributors,
and cannot be distributed in the case, say, when the "GPLv2 only"
program links against a LGPLv3 library.
Indeed it is a problem, but one of our previous dev don't want to
release under GPLv3+ (some of his code is still in Gajim: optparser)
