what license is ?
i'm making the package of a library (libevent) which has this license
this looks like a derived form of BSD license anyway i don't know
if i can put it under bsd license or i have to cut'n paste the license
inside the copyright file (anyway it looks debian compatible) .
the only difference seem to be point 3 beetween this and BSD Lic.
What do you suggest ?
