I am not a lawyer.
That conversation lack any proof of copyright and/or licensing having
changed from what is explicitly stated in headers of sourcecode. Only
the copyright holder can relicense beyond the scope of a previous
license, so stating that the project as a whole is licensed GPL-3+ when
some parts of the project is GPL-2 is not possible without the consent
of copyright holders.
I have posted a comment to the referenced upstream bugreport, to try
steer the discussion away from "Debian view on things" an instead look
at actual statements in code.
