Thanks for comments on technical points. I'll fix the mirror link and re-mail the patch with mutt.

Is the license really gpl2 and not gpl2+?

re: Licensing, my impression was that "gpl2+" only applies if the authors specifically invoke "any later version" when they distribute the software, per clause 9 of the GPL 2

"9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.

Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation."

Upstream lists the project as:
GNU General Public License version 2.0 (GPLv2)"

Am I in error?
