License - GPL v2 or v3 ?

Asked by Guillaume Giroux on 2010-01-12

Hi there, just a clarification I guess: the libnih overview page at lp https://launchpad.net/libnih shows the licence as GPLv3, but the sources all contain the standard GPL v2 header - which one is right?

Thanks for the pointer - the correct licence is GPL v2 only.

When in doubt, the source code is ALWAYS authorative (since it contains
the actual licence agreement)
