The original text has a conflict probably because some people didn't
regard GPLv2+ as a license name.  But the following detailed
explanation mentioned "you can redistribute it and/or modify it under
the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free
Software Foundation;either version 2 of the License, or (at your
option) any later version."  I think we should honor the more verbosed
text than the briefing(same way for X11 vs MIT).
