LGPL previously stood for "GNU Library General Public License". It was
changed to be the "Lesser GNU Public License" at some point not all that
long ago.

Read http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html if you'd like to know
why its name was changed.

LGPL version 2 is the GNU Library General Public License.
LGPL version 2.1 is the Lesser GNU Public License.

The COPYING file in libgimp is the LGPL, version 2.
The COPYING file in gtk+-1.2.6 is also the LGPL, version 2.

Its becoming obvious to me that you just don't know what you're talking
