Thanks for the clarification. (I read it wrong.)

We still need to obey: "copyright notice and this permission notice appear 
in supporting documentation". As I showed in the the multiple emails, we 
don't list anything in COPYING and also not all the licenses are even 
contained in the xf86-input-keyboard tarball.

I also had five other questions in my earlier emails :)
