[theme-reviewers] "GPL 2 or later" and Bootstrap

Hello all,

I'm reviewing a theme that includes Twitter Bootstrap, which I understand
would require licensing the theme as GPL v3. Style.css gives the license as
"GNU General Public License v2 or later".

What does that even mean? I know none of us are lawyers, but because of the
Bootstrap inclusion, should we require the GPL v3 license? And can you even
start with "v2 or later" and then specify v3?

Oy, licensing...
