We usually avoid making any bold claims in scancode license rules ;)

ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/GPL linked to a GPL-2.0  based on the
wayback machine which is why that scancode-toolkit rule was tagged as
a GPL-2.0.

You can see the notes I added back then in the license rule data file [1]:

   notes: The GPL version is not specified in this notice BUT at
   https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20020809115410/http://prep.ai.mit.edu:80/pub/gnu/GPL
   text is a GPL 2.0 license text

Since then, the web-beta site when offline, and the correct URL should
use FTP and not HTTP so you can check [2] which is exactly a GPL

I just pushed updated notes with the latest wayback URL [3]
