Title: Non-attributive "the GPLvn" unidiomatic
Correct inconsistency in use/nonuse of definite article before non-attributive uses of *GPLvn by opting for typical present-day FSF usage (with no article). I believe the FSF tends to use "GPLvn" (rather than "the GPLvn") when the license is referred to by abbreviation and is not prefixed by "GNU". This can be confirmed by analysis of usage on the fsf.org website.
