#14967 closed enhancement (fixed)

Include Free Software Foundation ZIP+4 in GPLv2 text

Reported by: niallkennedy's profile niallkennedy Owned by: nacin's profile nacin
Milestone: 3.1 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Warnings/Notices Keywords: has-patch

The most current version of the GPLv2 license includes a ZIP+4 code (a zone subsection in the United States addressing system); the copy of the license available with WordPress does not.

This patch adds an extra four digits to the Free Software Foundation address to fully match the text of the license.

Sorry for reopening but I didn't want to open new ticket for such nitpick.

wordpress/wp-includes/kses.php still has wrong address. Attached patch matches it with the one in license.txt.

But alas! shows yet another zipcode. Cursed be US Post!

Not sure whether we change according to that webpage or wait on another initiative from FSF.

I went with the +4 included in the official, current license. It's not uncommon for a single company/organization to have more than one +4 zip. It might be for sorting purposes, for example.
