    Ironies of life: when I changed the license of Tupi from GPLv2 to
GPLv3, I did it looking for "more freedom" or something
    like that. I have no idea about laws but as far as I understood, the
version 3 ensures that the code will be always available
    for the people "more than" the version 2, at least for some specific
cases. Anyway, it doesn't matter any more.

    Question: How should I make this license change without getting in a
legal issue? I mean: it can be done without any kind
    of trouble? I'll appreciate your guide on this. I have no problem
changing the license again.
