The above piece was the reply I got (in Feb. 2008) to my question:

Now, the problem is I would like to give credit where credit is due, and say that I took the text from PG, which I think is a fair thing to do. But according to the license it looks as if I cannot even mention "Project Gutenberg", am I reading it right? If this is so, what is the right thing to do? isn't it unfair to just give the text without even metioning where I took it from? Would it be better to say I took it from www.gutenberg.org (instead of the phrase "Project Gutenberg")?
So I'd say as long you make it clear the text is modified and you are not making money, it's OK to mention PG (that's what I usually do in my uploads, anyway)
