Hi Aurélien,

thanks for getting back to me. You can find some of your answers here 
[1]. If AMS is GPL V2 both licenses would be perfectly valid in your case.

Depending on which one you choose, you will need to update the license 
file. The license on your project page is not really of consequence its 
just confusing. I would also suggest that you add headers to all of your 
source code in the event that someone derives something from your work.
