License of the book - really version 2.0 of creative commons?

Hello list,

I'm currently in the process of translating current 6.4 LFS to german.
Now I'm wondering about licensing. The book says it's licensed under 
„Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 2.0“.

But: I cannot find this licence at, at least not for the 
USA. Only Version 3.0 seems to be available. And at a first glance it looks 
like the license text in the book is an exact copy of version 3.0 of this 
license (though I did not compare each and every character of the licence 

So maybe there is a typo? Is it possible that you chose „Attribution-
NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0“ as licence but by mistake wrote "2.0"?

Please can you clarify this? It is important to know because I have to choose 
the correct translated license text from for the book.

Cheers and thank you :-)
