The answer to your question is posted in this article

http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html

To sum it up really quickly there are basically two types of GNU licenses. There is the ordinary GNU public license and then there is the GNU lesser public license which used to be known as "Library GPL"

Anyway to determine which license an author might use is up to them, and in that article it kind of describes what license they should pick depending on what they are trying to do. Hope that helps.
