7Earlier contributions to JOSM did not specifiy a version of that license,
8but the license included in the distribution was version 2.

10All contributions made on or after 15 April 2008 are explicitly "GPL
11v2 or later".

13This is valid for all files released in the JOSM subversion tree, even
14if they do not carry their own copyright or license information.

16According to the current JOSM maintainer, it is safe to assume that all
17previous contributions are also "GPL v2 or later", but an effort will
18be made to contact the past contributors to have full clarity.
