Hi there, folks. Sorry if this is the wrong place to file this issue.

I'm coming from the Drupal project, where we're attempting to catalog a list of GPL-compatible external libraries for use in our distribution packaging system. has a big long list of licenses which are and are not GPL-compatible. One of the ones that's not is the classic 2-clause BSD license, which is unfortunately the license ( that links to, and also the one that links to.

However, in the actual source code at shows it's /actually/ the 3-clause BSD license which is at The text "New BSD license" in also seems to indicate this is a mistake, rather than intended.

TL;DR: Please link to instead of :)
