      Description

      The license for that external file states:

      /* This program is free software. You can redistribute it and/or modify */
      /* it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by */
      /* the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License. */

      which is somewhat ambiguous.

      I checked with the author (Anderson Torsten /Teknous <torsten.anderson@skeria.skelleftea.se>) and he said:

      "You can change this to whatever bests fits the way you want to distribute
      Moodle to be available to academic institutions!"

      So I'll update the file to this:

      /* This program is free software. You can redistribute it and/or modify */
      /* it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by */
      /* the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License or any */
      /* later version. */

      That way, it's GPLv2+ just like the rest of Moodle.
