Just browsing the kdenlive cgit...
kdenlive has some GPL-3+ code in its repository.
kdenlive has some GPL-2+ code in its repository.
The license in the package definition should be a list including GPL-2+ 
and GPL-3+, and the kdenlive maintainers should update the README

I usually search source for "(at your option)" (outside /COPYING
because the string is in the GNU licenses) to determine the license
