Can I get some advice on what is required to claim a GPL for a package?

A package I maintain (pcurve) uses some S code from statlib.  I have an 
email from the author of the S code saying that he would be happy to 
issue a GPL for the code.  Is the email from the author enough, or do I 
need something more formal?
