Right - the README does contain a copyright line, states it's GPL and links to
gnu.org, but copyright information is not in every file and the GPL text is not
included.

Can/should we include copyright information in each file, or do we need 
upstream to take care of this? Unless you beat me to it I'll prepare a patch 
somewhere next week to add copyright/license information to each source file
and send it to upstream.

As for not including the GPL license text, is that a problem?
