If the owner is compliant with the terms, this Content is licensed under
GPL or under other applicable licensing arrangements. I'm on the
(strong) assumption that there hasn't been any arrangements.
Thus, if no arrangements made, GPL is the only available option.

The matter is I have quite some points in favour and not a single sign
against it. If OSTG can confirm this, like MJ Ray suggested, it should
be reliable enough, shouldn't it?

So the next step will be to contact OSTG (that is, if I don't receive
any answer from the owner).

Read you later.
