I think this is ambiguous. Both the GNU GPL or the GNU LGPL have a version
2 revision; the currently in-use and well-known GNU GPL and an older release
of the GNU LGPL as the FSF tells us:
"Between version 2 and 2.1, the GNU LGPL was renamed from the GNU Library
General Public License to the GNU Lesser General Public License to better
reflect its actual purpose."
on http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html their list of various
licenses (and comments about them). I don't think it's much to ask that GNU
GPL be specified clearly. I also think it's wise to copy the text at the
end of the GPL to indicate licensing under the GPL.
