Please use capitalizations like in normal sentences, and for names such
as Guix and Meson.

Actually it seems to be released now:

This is a problem: GPL3 is famously incompatible with GPL2.  If these
plugins are licensed separately it would be good to list the license for
each and take it from there.

Even better (I think?) is to package each plugin separately.  Then users
can choose whether to combine these incompatibly-licensed plugins, but
we as a distribution can not (and probably not DISTRHO either).

Not sure what to do about it.  Ideas?
