Hi,

Libaca is licensed under the "DO WHAT THE F**K YOU WANT TO PUBLIC
LICENSE". Here is the full text (it's so short) :

  0. You just DO WHAT THE F**K YOU WANT TO.

It's pretty much Public Domain with the obligation of changing the name
for redistribution.

The name-changing obligation seems to refer to the license document itself and not the covered works by my reading of that paragraph.
