    Even though the individual source files in this repository are under
    GNU General Public License version 2 or later, the final binaries were
    being implicitly upgraded to version 3 or later of the license by
    virtue of linking against libraries like Babl and GEGL that are under
    GNU Lesser General Public License version 3 or later. Since GPLv2 does
    not permit combinations with LGPLv3, the only way to distribute the
    combined work was under GPLv3+.
    See: https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#AllCompatibility
    Let's clarify this by explicitly stating that this project is under
    GPLv3+ instead of pushing the burden of understanding how the code is
    linked together, and the licenses involved, on individual distributors.
