[aur-general] Licenses, GPL3 only

I just looked up the GPL notation again.
Here's the relevant excerpt from the wiki:


The (L)GPL has many versions and permutations of those versions.
For (L)GPL software, the convention is:

    * (L)GPL - (L)GPLv2 or any later version
    * (L)GPL2 - (L)GPL2 only
    * (L)GPL3 - (L)GPL3 or any later version

Now besides that this is obviously confusing there's another problem.
How would you specify that a program is GPL3 only?

und alle Fragen offen." Bertolt Brecht, Der gute Mensch von Sezuan
