The license for the files is seen in "EXHIBIT 1" in the following URL.

Roughly it claims that the copied files or software containing
the copy of thefiles should be accompanied by the same copyright

could contain the files by adding some notice but fially we

I'm not intending to insisnt on removing them if someone strongly
wants to preserve them, since their existence don't harm
