It seems the author is seriously confused about which terms he
offers. Unless you have hard evidence that the second answer is *not*
just an attempt to "clarify" the first license statement, I'd say we
cannot rely on it bein actually public-domain.
The first license you qouted is not DFSG-free, as it requires
notifying the original author of modified versions.
