Actually, the "(C)"s used to be there. But, I had removed them after having read: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-howto.html

"The copyright symbol “©” can be included if you wish (and your character set supports it), but it's not necessary. There is no legal significance to using the three-character sequence “(C)”, although it does no harm."

Nonetheless, I will do as you've instructed and add them back. :-)

We recommend including "(C)" in the copyright notices.

The copyright notices, permission-to-copy statements, and the plain text version of the GPL in a file named "COPYING" have been made.

See the last four project commits:

I have approved your project.  You will receive an automated e-mail containing detailed information about the approval.

In order to release your project properly and unambiguously under the GNU GPL, please place copyright notices and permission-to-copy statements at the beginning of every copyrightable file, usually any file more than 10 lines long.

In addition, if you haven't already, please include a copy of the plain text version of the GPL, available from http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt, into a file named "COPYING".
