I was looking at a package which contains license text identical to:
(the review is https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=452321)

The package maintainer and upstream contend this is BSD, not MIT.
Personally I think the license tag is for Fedora's use, and so there
shouldn't be any harm in just using MIT as the licensing page
indicates.  Still, I figured it would be good to double-check.
