I want to use license GPLv3 in my open source project on GitHub. And I want to ask how can I do that?
I have read an article and I have understood that:
- My repo has to have a file
License, that contains information about GPLv3.
- At the beginning of each project file should be the following text:
One line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.
name of author

And now I want to ask experts: Have I understood correctly how to use GPLv3 in my project?
