Hello!

I had a look into the new version of the SPDX license list and I think it is
a good idea to distinguish GPL-2.0-only and GPL-2.0-or-later.

However, I have not found the variant for:

"If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may
choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation. "

Shouldn't be an identifier (e.g. "GPL") for this situation?

I did not follow your mailing list. I apologize if this issues has already
been discussed.
IMHO the correct way to handle this is with a GPL-1.0-or-later: this
means the same thing to me.
