Linux version is supposed to be freely redistributable as far as I
know, so this isn't a problem. The problem is exactly how to formulate
the license in question to make that easier, because what they have now
surely doesn't allow redistribution. Which is why I've asked here so
others could possibly highlight the parts causing troubles.
