No Tom, it's GPLv2+ as the rest of KiCad. And the router is GPLv3+, not V3.

The headers in all files are GPLv2+, and that's what counts legally. I
think copyright.txt is misleading and should probably be changed. I
discussed extensively with Dick, Wayne and Jean-Pierre about this, and we
agreed that v3+ is OK for the router.

Agreed. Tom, Orson, congratulations! This is amazing work.
