I should explain more. The author's purpose, I'm relatively sure, is to
get a bit of attention/credit and/or do some advertising.
The package in question is ocs, a suite of web-based programs whose
components (e-mail, chat, calendar, etc.) work from a common base. Thus the
program's output is html and the GPL restriction/addition is a hypertext link
on the login screen of the system and a similar link in the about screen.
This link points to ocs' own web page.
