Dear legal gurus,

is it possible to publish software under GPL3,  if this software is
depending on some GPL2 libraries?

Sorry, I was trying to read GPL3, but my English is not good enough to
figure this out by myself.

Very short summary: if the libraries are “GPL version 2 or later”, you
can. If they are only GPL version 2, you can’t.

I was thinking it's just like this but I wasn't sure. Thank you very much for help.
