Yes, but doesn't say *which one*: that's the whole point here! All it
gives are very general terms that the license must follow. That's what
I've been calling the "mini-GPL".

No, I'm trying to separate the two parts of a patch, the fact that it's a
derived work from the file being patched and the creative component of the
patch, by discussing each individually because I believe that different
licensing issues apply to each.
