Upstream pointing to COPYING file in headers
I would like to confirm a situation. In a package that I will sponsor,
the upstream points to COPYING file in each header. Here is an
(C) 2007-2009 Lluís Batlle i Rossell
Please find the license in the provided COPYING file.
The provided COPYING file is the conventional full text of the GPL-2.
The upstream homepage says:
Download the latest version (GPLv2+ licensed): ts-0.7.5.tar.gz -
v0.7.5 (2014-03-06) - Changelog
However, I can't see any GPL-2+ reference in source code and the
COPYING file has the conventional FSL GPL text (as here).
IMHO, this "generical" case imposes a GPL-2 license, not a GPL-2+,
because the upstream didn't explain his intent in source code.
What is your opinion?
Thanks in advance.
