I recall, but don't know a reference to, an occurence of projects
being rejected by Savannah for licensing the work as "GPL version 2".
Apparently the project was rejected because they didn't have "or
later" in the license grant.

Is there any truth to this? Does Savannah have such a policy, or such
a history of rejecting projects on this criterion? Anyone got any
references to this? (IOW, I want facts, not FUD.)
