In README.md, source files and COPYING I can see references to GPL 2 and LGPL 2.1, but the POM talks about GPL 3, and LGPL 3

jruby/pom.rb

Lines 29 to 30 in 664b6ee

This was a mistake when the ruby pom stuff was created to replace our old maven build system. We will correct this to be GPL 2 and LGPL 2.1 like the rest of our project.
