Re: ng-spice legal-license advice

I see, the thing is that ngspice is actually reporting a BSD license on 
its web site :

inside thae package however it has alot of different original packages 
... like the original Berkley liense (which ceased to maintain 
publicly in the eighties or early nineties), a different license for 
xspice (also part of the build) and one of the continuations of ng-spice 
... people say that ng-spice may even turn into tclspice 

so which of these licenses are the one to choose ? or are all of them 
correct ?

It is still possible to package for contrib ... right ?
