Bug Description

xtrabackup says

"This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. This is free software,
and you are welcome to modify and redistribute it under the GPL license"

"the GPL license" is ambiguous. Does it mean any version of the GPL (including the ages old GPL v1), or something else? Some clarification would be welcome, for example "GPL version 2 or later" if that's the intention.
