Inclusion of GPLv2 license to header of files.


There's a reason why it's a good idea to add the full license to the top of the files, and that is due to the fact there can be ambiguity as to future submissions and to the current license.


The use of the term "or" in the header gives the assumption that licensing can remain somewhat lax, and just for the sake of comfort, I'd say it'd be a better idea to include the preamble.

Since with some of the code I have uploaded to the SVN, it is completely different to that of the PukiWiki that currently exists, and was written entirely by me - I have mandated that any editions maintain the header in the file.

GPL v2 or (at your option) any later version


Since there are considerable differences between GPLv3, it'd be wise to implicitly define GPL2 and then give the option of re-licensing under GPLv3 so long as there is compatibility with the previous author and those wanting to move to GPLv3. Still - it is very messy to have lots of different licenses and permutations thereupon, why even bother?
