Follow-up Comment #36, task #14945 (project administration):

Hi Karl,

> a license "compatible with the GNU GPL" (the phrase on both pages) means any
version of GNU GPL, present and future (that's implied in the GPL text
itself). That is why or-any-later-version is required. That is why the only
listed licenses are indeed compatible with GPLv3+. 
> In general, the idea of Savannah is to host software that can be used as
part of the GNU Project, because the FSF sponsors/owns Savannah. And that
means being compatible with GPLv3+. 
> It is true that we could explicitly state that GPLv3+ compatibility is
required; I'll look into that. But it is already implicit in the words there,
and, regardless of how good we are at writing explanations, it has always been
the policy. 

In addition to that, I think I can claim my project as
"GNU General Public License v2 or later", from the faq text:

And I think Savannah has exceptions and it seems not only because of the
"historical reasons" (projects "historical" approved till to the last year),
so I think I could leave some words to comment these "historical" exceptions
of course.

But ok, that is all, thanks for your and Ineiev's kindly help :)

Gao Xiang
