unfortunately this will will prevent OSTree[1] which is distributed
under GPLv2+ to use parse-datetime which is using GPLv3+.

My request is to change its license to GPLv2+ so to allow programs
distributed under GPLv2+, such as OSTree, to use it.

It has already happened in the past that the license for some modules
was changed to accomodate integrations with other programs.  Why
wouldn't this be the case as well?
