Great that works. Thanks a lot. I've not seen that page before. Now i'ts a
part of my Bookmark Collection :-)

What is the convention when the package is licensed under various of
them? comma? "and"? "+" ?

It depends what you mean with more than one license.

If I'm not mistaken, it's something like this:

- "GPL-2.0+ ; LGPL-2.1+": aggregate (different files with different
licenses)

- "GPL-2.0+ or LGPL-2.1+": choice of licenses (dual-licensed software,
for instance)

- "GPL-2.0+ and LGPL-2.1+": mix of licenses (not sure when this
happens, probably when some binary is made from code with two
compatible licenses?)

Cheers,

Vincent
