Hi Team,

I thought WordPress is not yet GPLv3 although the about page says: The
license under which the WordPress software is released is the GPLv2
(or later) http://wordpress.org/about/license/

But GPLv3 says : Please note that GPLv3 is not compatible with GPLv2
by itself. http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/license-list.html#GPLCompatibleLicenses

I see some themes have GPLv3 license. I have been pointing them to use
GPLv2. Can somebody please confirm this ?
