You don't need written permission for GNU Go. GNU Go comes with the GPL
as license, which allows you to redistribute it if you follow
some rules. In your case, you would be fine if you include the GNU Go
source code on the CD, the license itself (the file "COPYING" in the GNU
Go sources), and a note somewhere on the CD that GNU Go is licensed
under GPL.

About the version, I would suggest 3.7.3.

On you could
sign-up for gnugo-announce, which would inform you about a new version
once every 1-2 months.
