This works.  The keys would be generated by ssh-keygen, part of
the openssh suite.  Paste the contents of your
~/.ssh/identity.pub file in the text box of the form.  It appears
to take some time for the posted public key to propagate to the
user's ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file, but it does work now.

I agree.  I don't honestly see any reason why the GPL alone won't

wrt individual files in the distribution, each standalone
component should probably include either the standard or
abbreviated in-file GPL banner, along with the GNU.org URL for
the full license text.
