All required DFSG freedoms are granted by this text.
The conditions do not impose any non-free restrictions.
By my reading, the grant and conditions are exactly equivalent to the
well-understood Expat license grant and conditions.
This work, provided its complete license grant and conditions was only
the above text, would IMO be uncontroversially DFSG-free.
Thank you for pursuing effective software freedom for Debian recipients
of this work.
