Hi all,

A legal review, while trying to subimit GTick 0.5.1 to openSUSE
Factory (development project for the next version of openSUSE)
revealed some inconsistencies with the license texts being presented
to the users:

The english text states that the license is GPL-3.0+ but the corresponding
translated text states the license is GPL-2.0+.

109420 > "modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License\n"

Can you please clarify, and if possible, in the not too distant
future, have a release addressing this issue?

Thank you very much, and keep up the good work!
