The copyright headers for the sources in LAME still say LGPL2.0. The
patch simply reflects this.

I suspect you do not understand my point, then:

LGPL2.0 == GNU Library General Public License version 2.0

LGPL2.0 != GNU Lesser General Public License version 2

You proposed the latter, which has 2 (two) flaws: a) "Lesser" instead of
the correct "Library", and b) "2" instead of the correct "2.0".

Kind regards,

It would have been better to change the text into
"GNU Lesser General Public License version 2.1"

Gabriel, was it this what you intended as you replaced
"Library GPL" by "Lesser GPL", some years ago?
