The maintainers list would probably be a better place for this

But in any case, I don't know why you think it is GPL version 2 only.
I think every file in Octave that contains a copyright statement says

  GNU Octave is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it
  under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the
  Free Software Foundation; either version 2, or (at your option) any
  later version.
