The GPL requires you to to provide the preferred source code for doing
updates. So for PDFs generated from some other source (as opposed directly
with a pdf editor) one is arguably required to provide that other source when
distrubuting GPL licensed PDFs. (IMO the GPL doesn't really make a good
documentation or artwork license.)
