Problem that I see arises from the GNU GPLv3 and I have referenced it
already. Here we go again:

Please see "5. Conveying Modified Source Versions."

1. Full license text file is missing in the distribution.

2. Source files do not have proper license notices. "GPLv3" is not enough. 

3. Somewhere in the interactive interface you could add short notice.

Yesterday I have seen in Github repository, such file did not exist.

The three points above remain unhandled.
