It is possible in git to message the user who is trying to push to the
repo. Therefore it would be easy to notify git-users that by uploading they
agree to distribute their PKGBUILD under GPLv3.
I personally think that this behavior is more appropriate than just asking
once when the account is created respectively updated. It would remind the
user each and every time that they must agree to license their files under
Maybe it might even make sense to combine both proposed solutions.
