My understanding of the licensing of haskell-datetime is this: the real
license declaration is the line in datetime.cabal
In all the versions of the GPL license it is explicitly said that not
specifying the version means that every version is good. According to
this, the debian/copyright says just GPL, without any version
specification, meaning the same thing.
The COPYING file, just as the link to the GPL-2 in debian/copyright, are
meant just as examples.
Anyway, if you prefer, I'll fix this link in the next version.
