Follow-up Comment #5, task #15279 (project administration):

GNU documentation explicitly says that files like README and ChangLog also
should have copyright and license notices
<>.  For
copyright purposes, files more than ten lines long are copyrightable, and your
ChangeLog is much longer.

In your new tarball, README still has no copyright notice; COPYING.CC0 has
neither copyright nor license notice.

I'm not sure about tests/*: each file is small, but they do sum up in
something copyrightable.  I think one may add notices even when the files are
that small.  In any case, the form of license notice from the GPL should be
used: currently, COPYRIGHT suggests that only the GPL version from COPYING may
be used, which is incompatible with Savannah hosting requirements.  Then, to
avoid confusion, I suggest listing all relevant files when stating their terms
in a README. Also, I really dislike the wording "Unless otherwise stated".  In
its extreme, it may mean that the user has to look for additional conditions
all imaginable and unimaginable places, inside and outside your tarball.  I
believe you should know your terms and be able to state them at once.
