I think we should use the upstream tag, "v2016.01.0".

Then, you can use the tag name as the commit. The tag I mentioned is
equivalent to this commit.

My interpretation of the first paragraph of COPYING [0] is that the
package is licensed under the GPL version 2 only. What do you think?

I will do that.  Thanks.

All the .c files in the package explicitly say "either version 2 of the License,
 or (at your option) any later version".

Okay, I guess the statement in COPYING [0] can be interpreted to not
exclude distribution under later versions. It merely confirms that you
can distribute under version 2.

All files included in microcom are distributable under the "GNU GENERAL
PUBLIC LICENSE version 2". (Some might have the "or any later version"
phrase; this doesn't affect the previous statement though.) If the file
doesn't specify a license explicitly, assume "version 2 only". The "GNU
GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE version 2" is appended below.
