Shouldn't the license of `gcc` and `mingw-w64-gcc` be `GPL3` according to The Wiki ( explicitly distinguishes between "GPLv2 or any later version" and "GPLv3 or any later version" and I suppose the latter would be more accurate.
This task depends upon

Thanks for the update, I found the changes in Git. (It makes sense not to rebuild the package just for a change like this.) However, I suppose other variants such as `mingw-w64-gcc` and `aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc` should be updated as well. Likely it makes no sense to create an individual ticket for each of them.
