All requirements are listed in https://savannah.gnu.org/register/requirements.php

Yes, it would be nice to have a program to automatically check licensing terms, but I don't think this is really feasible.

I'm approving your package.  The only minor issue I see that still remains is with the SVG file.  When I open it with Inkscape and look into "Document Properties"=>"License", it confusingly says, "Proprietary".  I'd recommend filling that field correctly.

Maybe there should be a project-license-linter thing? 1. check file headers 2. check if headers match the COPYING file 3. idk... ?

Let me know if there are any more requirements.

I feel you missed the point: it is not to make me happy at all.  It is to demonstrate your commitment to follow Savannah policies. Your sarcasm suggests the opposite: you'll do whatever you are asked to get an approval, and then forget about it.

If even that doesn't make you happy, here you go.

> which files?

All copyrightable files; please check the link from comment #1 for what it means.  This is a hosting requirement, you should be familiar with it.

> Will this suffice?

I'm afraid, no.
