Follow-up Comment #5, task #8917 (project administration):

Yes, I think you guys are right about the Modified BSD license. I
misinterpreted what they meant by removal of the advertising clause.

I did find such a 4-clause license in lumps/genmidi/oplvar.h

If the Modified BSD licensed projects files like the scripts do not need a
copyright notice and the license notice included, I guess it would be alright.
I am on the assumption of the contrary; the copyright and license notice rule
still applies with a Modified BSD license. 

The only file that has the full license notice and the copyright notice
pertaining to the project itself was in 


There is also some files from the PlayPal? project that claims GPL and its
folder has an older version of the GPL. That's fine I guess.

I am not sure why Simon Howard placed a comment "Consider this GPL'd".
Probably a joke.

They have a CREDITS file which lists the contributors and a general thing
that they have done. There are also status files but those seem to be mostly
for their goals and not dating a copyright.

I believe all the other things are okay. Free Software ethic instead of Open
Source. There is a mention of linux instead of GNU/Linux in
./levels/oblivion/map31.txt . I believe he is correct about the dependencies,
I took a look at the webpage but did not d/l the their licenses. I don't know
what a Pbmplus license is.
