[Fedora-legal-list] WOL - wide open license - compatibility with Fedora



Couldn't see any discussion of WOL previously, so here goes: A
particular source file (smbPitchShift.[Ch]) within the rakarrack [1] sources is licensed under WOL:
=====
The Wide Open License (WOL)

=====
Is this compatible with Fedora ?
What would be the License field if the whole package was licensed this way ?

In this case, the source archive has:
- [GPLv3] COPYING (overall copying file).
- [GPLv2] header (no or later version) in most source/header files.
- [GPL+] 3x files {GPL, no version mentioned, see COPYING}.
- WOL 1x file/header
What would be the required license, or will a need to query upstream for their licensing intentions {each module tends to have differing authors} ?
