Subject: RFE: "...or any later version" support
It's not unusual to find software licensed under the terms of a certain license "or any later version." It would be useful to be able to reflect that. e.g. Software::License::GPL_2_or_Later

I've created similar patches for Software::Licenses Debian package. See the gpl-*-plus-class patches in : http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-perl/packages/libsoftware-license-perl.git;a=tree;f=debian/patches;hb=HEAD You may or may not want the DEBIAN_SUMMARY data from these patches. In any case, these summaries are harmless. (they are used in summary_method patch) Hope this helps

Following a discussion with rjbs during Perl hackathon in Paris, I've reworked the this set of patch to provide this feature (and more): http://anonscm.debian.org/gitweb/?p=pkg-perl/packages/libsoftware-license-perl.git;a=tree;f=debian/patches;hb=HEAD All the best
