Re: GPL vX or later issue
I should be more explicit.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I think we are combining two issues into one and that yields some confusion.
Let us assume "GPLv2 or any newer version"
From a practical interpretation point of view, the user is allowed to
choose one license or another, and it is not different than any other
But from a modeling point of view, I see the statement "any newer
version of the license" as a licensing statement
that gets conjuncted to the GPL. In other words, the license is the
concatenation of the clauses of the GPL plus the "any newer version of
gplv2+ => (GPL and "the relicense with any newer license")
The trilicense, in the other hand, is:
(MPL1.1 or GPL v2+ or LGPL v2.1+) and (the ability to drop any two
licenses from the file--relicense)
I know it does not sound practical, but one one has to logical
assertions on the licenses, it makes senses.
