At the moment we represent the software we consider under GNU General Public
License, version 2 of the license, but we cannot be sure it's alright to
license it to "any later version". Linux kernel for instance is licensed
_only_ under GPLv2, but not any later version.
What I propose is to copy licenses/GPL-2 to license/GPL-2+ and adding the
following notes at the start of the two files:
Note: this license states that the software is licensed under GNU General
Public License version 2, and you might not be able to consider it licensed
under any later version.
Note: this license explicitly allows licensing under GNU General Public
License version 2 or, at your option, any later version.
Comments, ideas, proposals?
