Did anyone besides me notice this:

v 2.0.

In other words, software under all of those licenses (e.g., Apache 2.0,
GPLv3) is to be combined in some way under a single GPLv2 license. 


This is fine as far as I'm concerned (!!), but does anyone here doubt the
appropriateness of that combination given FSF opinions about the reach of
GPLv2?    Or is that FSF position no longer relevant?  :-)

That's the easy question, Karl.

We are planning to distribute an open source software which has been
developed using other open source projects. The software developed based on
these packages is set to release under GPL v 2.0. I am sharing the packages
used and their corresponding License details. We would like to use open
source logo on our website. Please do let us know if there is any issue in
doing so.
