I do not know what is position of GNU, as I do not represent GNU

However, GNU project got notice on the mailing list about licensing of
Spacemacs and that is why I have brought the message from the Emacs
Tangents to the Github issue.

Classification of software is separate from the copyright. If the
init.el is distributed and modifies Emacs, it creates new combined
work and thus should be properly licensed. That somebody calls it
"init" is not relevant to copyrights.

Programmers and users may call and classify software as they wish.
