The License is very close to the MIT license. It's even closer to the STL license. 

However, it's not exactly either of them as it has the name of the author in
some places. Best I suppose would be to make the License field "STL" as thats
what it's closest to, and file a RFE against rpmlint to add that license. 

I think rpmlint only recognizes the MIT tag as thats what OSI calls the MIT/X11
license. gnu.org calls it only the X11 license and says "This license is
sometimes called the "MIT" license, but that term is misleading, since MIT has
used many licenses for software." 

I guess I do see a number of packages using X11/MIT, so I guess rpmlint should
recognize either of the forms of this same license (X11, MIT/X11, MIT).
