Thank you!

Unfortunately, stage2/High_level_prototypes/makefile still lacks
licensing terms; also, there is no copyright notice in many files.

The point is not to remove any files; the point is have valid copyright and license notices for every file: without them, the file is technically not redistributable.

README still lacks these notices; please make sure that all copyrightable files have them.

Glass_TTY_VT220.ttf serves no functional purpose (I just like the way it looks as a font) and it can be removed if required.

The jquery-1.8.3.js is just the unmodified source provided by the jquery project with the license header they provided.
It is part of the Web IDE component, which could be broken into a separate project if required.

As for the gpl2+ selection, it was due to the fact that I did not see a gpl3+ option. and hopefully the attached fixes satisfy your other recommended improvements

README and files like High_level_prototypes/{defs,makefile,purpose.org}, public/{Glass_TTY_VT220.ttf,jquery-1.8.3.js} lack proper copyright and licensing notices, please check

Could you fix that?

Also, LICENSE is not the authentic GPLv3 text; please use the one provided on https://www.gnu.org/l/gpl-3.0.txt (BTW, your submission claimed GPLv2+; was that a mistake)?

Well that could be done with:
rm -rf .git/
rm -rf x86/floppy_images/
as everything else was made by hand

Could you leave in the tarball only relevant source files, without generated files and Git repository?

This would make evaluation much easier.
