Follow-up Comment #3, task #8796 (project administration):

That would be the big issue for this site. The documentation in the
article "How To Get Your Project Approved Quickly" states it would cause
compatibility problems with the later versions of the GPL. This would prevent
projects using the GPL Version 3 license to copy any code that is used in your
project, which stifles the freedoms advocated by FSF and GNU.

To answer your question, it does mean that you cannot register on this site
unless you change the licensing notice to include the "or (at your option) any
later version" formulation.

You should have realized that you selected the license: "GNU General Public
License v2 or later" when you submitted your registration.
