Actually there are two licenses, the GPL and then there is the simple
"this code is public domain" and then there are 2-3 files with no
copyright at all.
So is it enough to say that all but x are GPL and the rest are public
domain (and give which files are what)? Given that I will get a
copyright for the 2-3 that don't have one yet.

I thought we were not supposed to put any upstream files into the svn?
So you will have to fetch your own upstream?
