I can only speak on the subject of US law, but it appears to me that the
statement "All the material in this file is subject to the Gnu license
version 2." would govern because the reference to Caldera's code doesn't
make any claim to assert a license, it's merely a statement of
I will ask caldera! My troubles are the words "Portions Copyright...".
I have interpreted: the original code was from caldera with such
copyright/licence, and the rest of file is pure GPL. But because there are
no date on initial GPL code, it is simpler that I ask Caldera about the meaning
of this sentence.
