x/pkgsite: detects full text of GPL3 licenses as both GPL3 and GPL2 #45432
What is the URL of the page with the issue?
https://pkg.go.dev/github.com/netdata/go.d.plugin, but this is just an example.
What did you do?
Looked at the licenses for this module, which contains (I think) a verbatim copy of the GPL3 page at https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.en.html.
What did you expect to see?
What did you see instead?
GPL3 and GPL2.
@julieqiu showed me the license detector information for the module, which at a glance suggests that it's detecting the text in the "How to apply these terms to your software" section as GPL2, despite the rather critical "version 3" in it.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
The "why not LGPL" link has apparently changed. Accept both links.
