Default requesting permission from George to release Prime95 screenshot under GPL

Although most of the source code for Prime95 is publicly available, it is technically not free (as in "free beer") software because of the prize distribution terms (if Prime95 was truly free software, then users could claim the EFF prize directly, but that's not the point of this post).

Anyways, I am planning to add the attached screenshot to the Wikipedia article on Prime95. The English Wikipedia accepts non-free images provided that there is a good reason for it. However, I would like to upload it to Wikimedia Commons so that it could be used on other wikis. The problem is, Wikimedia Commons does not accept any non-free material. Therefore, I am requesting permission to upload the below image under the GPL.

Thanks.
