The linked common licence is the modified BSD licence AFAIK, so I
don't feel that either of those would be accurate.  I've added the
unmodified BSD licence with its own entry, along the lines of the wiki

I've also removed some obsolete "work in progress", added directions
on searching the list archive, current packages and the REJECT FAQ and
changed a few wordings slightly.  Diff is at
