The post was also published by its main author at:
And everything published in the website is under the MIT license, same
than everything published in bits.d.o by default.
But since the above link is rather unknown to people, I added the link

complaining about us copying from there without the license stuff, etc.
Looks like no matter what was done people was going to raise issues anyway :)
