Re: [Fedora-legal-list] License tag status - 2007/08/29

What about the different license versions?

GDFL+
GDFLv1.1
GDFLv1.1+
GDFLv1.2
GDFLv1.2+

AFAIK, the first version was 1.1.  So following what's done with LGPL,
both GDFL and GDFL+ could be removed.  It would all be easier if the
short license tag was just GDFL, but if the license is versioned, it
could make a difference in the future[*], so it seems like it'd be
best to use the version numbers from the start.

Of course, I'd be very glad to hear that we don't need to be that
pedantic.

[*] if that weren't true, we'd still be happily using GPL as the
license tag, right? :)
