Incorrect FSF Address error from rpmlint

Upstream had a few files that had the old address.  I've noticed the GPLv3
doesn't have an address in it's notice.  Is it sufficient to instruct
to just remove the address for GPLv2.  Not that they're going to move
again, but seems to be alot of work for everybody if the address is
actually required.
