[Openvas-devel] License clarification: webserver_favicon.nasl

There is a statement in openvas-plugins-1.0.2/scripts/webserver_favicon.nasl:

"Licensed under the GPL as available at http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html"

This is ambiguous, as this website is changed with every update of the GPL.
Thus, if the script comes from <= June 2007, the author would have licensed it
under the GPLv2. After June 2007, it would be the GPLv3.

Please, could you change that statement to something like "Licensed under the GPL v3 or later"?

It would help to clarify the licensing situation considerably.

Thank you
