BY-NC-ND in short:

        This license allows reusers to copy and distribute the material
        in any medium or format in unadapted form only, for
        noncommercial purposes only, and only so long as attribution is
        given to the creator.


And the PDF provided by this commit is the extraction of page 8 from

which is a document of 21 pages.  Therefore, is this distribution of an
extracted derivative allowed by BY-NC-ND in the first place?

Maybe it seems worth to ask to Poppler devs their opinion.
