Hum, the situation is a bit weird:

 * The homepage of the project states " It is written in C, and is free
   software licensed under the GPLv2."

 * The tarball contains a COPYING file which is a copy of the GPLv3.

 * The source code itself contains the mention:

     This program 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 of the
     License, or (at your option) any later version.

So in the end, it's hard to decide whether it's GPLv2+ or GPLv3+. Maybe
you could contact the author of 'stress' and clarify the situation?

Best regards,

Thomas

OK. I just sent a mail to the author for clarifying the license issue.
