and if that says GPLv2 then that is so. Files with this type of
copyright need to be relicensed by the copyright holder or if that
isn't possible they need to be replaced.

No problem. It is good to discuss it but I'm afraid that there are
probably no shortcuts here. So to get some momentum IMHO the proper
