It's cool.

I check intro/license_disk.wml, and it has

<LI><A HREF="../misc/bsd.license">BSD style license</A>.
        <B>SUMMARY:</B> Binaries and source code must contain the license;
                advertising must acknowledge the developers listed in the license

Is this OK ? If the "BSD style license" does not have "advertising clause", 
should we remove the sentence above "advertising must acknowledge 
the developers listed in the license", then ?

I checked the Japanese translation also, there is no translation for
license_disk.wml. In free.wml, it seems to be enough just to remove
the List Item for modified BSD license. I will do it later for Japanese
translation of free.wml.
