This notice makes no sense at all. Either the document is copyrighted,
and there can be requirements ("mentioning the source") or it's not,
and there are NO requirements. It's not possible to have a work that
is not copyrighted and has requirements for use.

I suggest finding the actual copyright holder and getting either a
real license statement or a dedication to the public domain written
properly to allow lenient licensing in the case that a specific
jurisdiction doesn't have a concept of PD.
