I just ran into the following license. It is GPL v2 or GPL v3+ KDE exception. Note the absence of GPLv2.1. If 2.1 was included, the name would be GPL-2+-with-KDE-exception, but since it isn't, what is the protocol?

I've never heard of GPLv2.1, but if you mean LGPLv2.1, the KDE project has a similar license for that too.

Basically this license says:

"KDE e.V. currently only approves GPLv2 or GPLv3, but if the members of KDE e.V. approve a newer version, then that license is OK for this code too"
