There's NO WAY that could be the case for the files we're discussing.
We know that. Other
files that your scan identified is not part of this discussion. This
discussion is about properly
importing unmodified 3d party code originally available under
PostgreSQL license.

I can not see how a project available under PostgreSQL license could
legally include GPL code
for example, so this particular point in context of this particular
discussion is moot. Lets move on.

Good. We agree then.

Correct. All I know is that it is an ALv2 compatible license.
