I posted you the specific grant in my previous eMail,
did you not see it?

In general, grants say “this is licenced under X”,
unless specified otherwise, and a generic review
for this is to be possible. (In this case, this
is also the actual specific grant.)

The wording is only really relevant if either the
licence is embedded in the grant, as in the BSD camp,
or in the specific case of things like GPL versions.
This affects actually a minority of licences.
