There's been some informal discussions about VLC's GPL versioning on IRC
this afternoon. I've had a quick look at the licenses of most of our
dependencies (but definitely not all, and definitely neither fully
At least the following dependencies seem to be distributed under GPL
version 2 with NO provision for later versions:
libsysfs seems to be LGPL v>=2.1 though some part of its source package
are GPL v==2. As a funny (well not really) note, lirc is GPLv>=1.
So, de-facto, VLC is already GPLv==2 (unless you remove some plugins).
