When we use, use_gpl3_license() the description file does not contain CRAN compliant License: GPL-3 + file LICENSE in description file.
License: GPL-3 + file LICENSE
Without this feature, when we run R CMD check --as-cran mypackage we get the following NOTE:
R CMD check --as-cran mypackage
* checking top-level files ... NOTE
Having use_gpl3_license() output GPL-3+ file LICENSE in description file would be very helpful similar to the output of use_mit_license()
GPL-3+ file LICENSE

Would you like to fix this in a pull request?
Sorry, something went wrong.
Yes please that would be great.

Question from Cervan: Should I do this for other licenses while I'm working on it?
Answer: Search in Writing R Extensions to see if GPL-3 is the only one that needs this treatment (besides MIT).
