The first link leads to a template for the license, shouldn't the site 
rather point to an own page with the filled out template? There is also 
Section 4. in the GPL which states "...and give all recipients a copy of 
this License along with the Program." It is my understanding that the 
site itself should include a full copy of the GPL...
