Hi Ricardo,

Ok I got it. That raises three questions for me though.
1.) I remember from what I have read on that if one part of the program 
is GPL-3 or in general GPL that means everything becomes GPL. So as I 
understand that is the reason the program becomes GPL-2+, correct? Or does the 
original license of GPL-2 applies for the whole program?
2.) Should I contact Gentoo to correct it? Because I checked a couple of files 
from kdenlive too and they said GPL-2+. 
3.) Why are saying that they are GPL-2 then and not GPL-2+? Is it just a case 
of not updating the COPYING file or their site? Because the Dolphin File 
Manager also says GPL-2+ in a lot of files but their site says GPL-2.
