let me restate what I wrote on the marketing list - perhaps it helps to 
solve this problem:

minimal and straightforward: use the same license
indication in and in the
page footer, i.e., remove the wrong "(or later)" from the text.

hm, I'm not sure, but didn't we have this "or later" paragraph for new
contributions? Wasn't it a combination of LGPLv3 or later and the MPL?

See the issue as:
- The text of reads "LGPLv3 
(or later)"
- The footer of the same page reads "LGPLv3".
- Being different, at least one of them is wrong.

I wrote:

I agree to your statement that "LGPL 3 (or later)" is not the license the present 
LibreOffice product is released under.

I'd replace "LGPL 3 (or later)" by "As parts
of our code have been licensed under LGPL 3, the full binaries have to be 
released under this license, even if we aim to LGPL 3 (or later) and MPL in 

Best regards
