I'm less certain on that question. I was hoping that I was going to get
that answered. I am inclined to think that as the source files did not
themselves specify or include a particular version, that we could
release a new package with an updated license. This I'm not 100% sure
on, though given that I've changed the text of the license on the
website (where the source files point), I'm personally comfortable with
releasing a package with newer license.txt or no license.txt at all
(since there are instructions for getting the license from
propel.phpdb.org in the header files).
