If you are so smart at interpreting the Federal Rules of Civil

and promissory estoppel?

Neither of those applies to the GPL. Preemption is irrelevant
because GPL claims are filed with respect to infringement of
the exclusive rights of authors as described by federal law.
Promissory estoppel is irrelevant because the GPL clearly
describes the conditions under which covered works may be
copied and distributed.
