Follow-up Comment #9, task #9882 (project administration):


the LGPL is compatible to the GPL. In addition, it grants you as a recipient
the right to relicense the software under GPL.

What might be problematic is the "version 2.1 only". This is why Savannah is
somewhat insisting all GPL projects use the "any later" clause.

However my interpretation of the license text is that you have the freedom to
relicense under any GPL version if you choose to switch to GPL. 

> 3. You may opt to apply the terms of the ordinary GNU General Public
License instead of this License to a given copy of the Library.  To do this,
you must alter all the notices that refer to this License, so that they refer
to the ordinary GNU General Public License, version 2, instead of to this
License.  (If a newer version than version 2 of the ordinary GNU General
Public License has appeared, then you can specify that version instead if you

So I'd say you can incorporate it into your project, switching it to GPLv3 or
any later in the process. If another admin thinks I am mistaken, please speak
