[Pkg-octave-devel] Bug#435206: octplot: copyright incorrectly listed as GPL version 2 only

Package: octplot
Version: 0.3.9-3
Severity: minor

The /usr/share/doc/octplot/copyright lists the license as being
GPL (and some LGPL) version 2, but all of the source files list the 
license as being version 2 or (at your option), any later version.

For example, src/octplot_main.cpp reads:

// Copyright (C) 2003 Shai Ayal <shaiay at users.sourceforge.net>
// This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
// it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
// the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or
// (at your option) any later version.
