While the GPL strongly recommends putting copyright notices in each
source file, it does not require to do so. In the case of ax25-apps, the
upstream tarball claims that the work is being licensed under
GPL-2. Unless one has evidence that this claim might not be true, I see
no reason to think otherwise.
