Update to National Archives link for the OGL[edit]

I have changed http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/ to http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/2/. This was in response to a request from a correspondent within the Ministry of Defence representing photos.mod.uk.

A brief review shows nothing of concern, however I would not be against this license being adapted to be able to point to previous versions of the OGL guidelines if anyone had reason to judge that this would make any difference to the nature of the copyright release on Commons.

The request email is not logged with OTRS, hopefully the updated guideline is self evidently a modest update, but I would be happy to give this an OTRS ticket for the record, if anyone feels it necessary. Thanks -- (talk) 17:40, 14 October 2013 (UTC)

Wrong image used[edit]

The template had used a graphic of the Royal Coat of Arms, which clearly is not permitted under the terms of the OGL. It should be replaced by an unofficial OGL graphic instead. The official one has Commons:Deletion_requests/File:OpenGovernmentLicence.svg already been deleted as unfree. LeadSongDog (talk) 17:01, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Different Versions of OGL[edit]

We're now up to version 3 of the license ([1]). Do we need separate templates for the different versions? Or should the current template be updated?--Ingafube (talk) 14:22, 28 June 2015 (UTC)

We have different versions of the template. It's the list of Commons:Copyright tags that needed updating, which it now is!--Ingafube (talk) 14:38, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
Would moving this page to OGL1 be the right thing to do?--Ingafube (talk) 14:46, 28 June 2015 (UTC)
