Which GPL for Ogg Frog?
I am working on an audio application called Ogg Frog
(http://www.oggfrog.com/). It is not released yet, but I hope to
release the first version later this fall.
I am having trouble deciding which version of the GPL I will release it
under. It has two GPL dependencies so far, libmad and libid3tag, which
are both GPLv2 or later, so I could choose to release Ogg Frog under
either GPLv2 or GPLv3.
I have read many of the arguments over GPLv3, and tried to weigh their
merits, but I'm afraid they all just make my head spin.
I have always been uncomfortable with the "or, at your option, any later
version" in GPL license notices. It is most likely that if I choose
GPLv3, I will require that specific version and not allow any later version.
Is there a web page somewhere that distills the essence of each of the
arguments, pro and con? I've tried to read some of the threads and
Debian legal, but I'm afraid I haven't been able to reach a conclusion
by doing so.
Thanks for any advice you can give me.

Software isn't the only thing that should be free.
Music should be too, as it once was.
