Information about the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Instructions for how to apply the guidelines to your program.

Since the guidelines are a complement to the GPL, we can take the GPL's application suggestions as a template:

[...] attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

For an MCnet project, one suggestion would be to place the following at the start of each source code file (C++ used as an example here, use the appropriate comment characters for other languages):

 // is a part of Sherpythwig++,
 // a single-purpose example generator.
 // Copyright (C) <year(s)> <name(s) of authors>
 // Sherpythwig++ is licenced under version 2 (or any
 // later version) of the GPL, see COPYING for details.
 // Please respect the MCnet academic usage guidelines,
 // see GUIDELINES for details.

This short text should be sufficient for the source code files. The longer variation suggested in the GPL together with author contact details could go into the README file.
