I believe that your DEP5 had it marked as GPL-2+. I wrote the script
quickly to double-check, so there's a chance it's spitting out errors.

(this is actually the first time it's ever been run, so \o/)

I'll push the script somewhere, I checked a few quickly, but it might be
spitting out nonsense. Sorry about that, I should have checked more

It's worth checking a few, but the way to read 

./src/mirall/accountsettings.cpp is not GPL-2, it's GPL-2+


./src/mirall/accountsettings.cpp is GPL-2+ in the copyright file, but
it's actually GPL-2

That string came out backwards. Mixed up some args :)
