All I see is ‘license.txt’, which says that it’s under GPLv2-only.
Should it be simply ‘license:gpl2’?

The rest looks good to me!

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Dammit, you're right. I wrote the expression for my own use, using git,
then changed it back to a release for submission here. I didn't realise
the relicencing was so recent.

However, in my AGPL3 HEAD, license.txt and LICENSE are still GPLv2 —
i.e. wrong. I'll write myself a note to ignore them when updating. I'll
send a note upstream as well.

Thanks,
