You need to obtain permission to get it under different terms, you can
not remove the terms of the original license.

I had the impression that we had listed the explicit license for code
that we have ported, but it seems that Cesar did not track this.

I have CCed him on this email, maybe he can clarify, and if did port the
code he should include the original license that he got it under, and
document those license changes in the toplevel assembly directory.
