Upstream clarified in an email [1] that the license is GPLv2.  Also,
they did explicitly remove the "or any later version" part in the file; I just missed that detail at first.  However, there is
no license embedded in the source files themselves.  In this case, is is
correct to add this package as GPLv2?
