i would like to use a part, or parts of phpBB code into a personal project
i saw that the copyright allows me to do so ( hopefully i'm not wrong )

but i opened this topic to inform phpBB to update the link to the copyright, in some pages is not specified GPL v2 or v3

in case i'm wrong please say so :roll:

thanks in advance ;)

It is GPLv2. See section 8 of docs/README.html

Copyright statements in all source files in the next major version will specify GPL v2.

We did not make this change in 3.0.x maintenance releases because it is a lot of changed lines to go through and most board owners don't care.
