The exact terms of the license state:

3. All advertising materials mentioning features or use of this software
   must display the following acknowledgement:
   This product includes software developed by Eric Young ([EMAIL PROTECTED])

Therefore, any advertising materials mentioning *freeswan* must display
the acknowledgement.  If (and only if) we mention the freeswan package in
our release document are we required to include this acknowledgement.
(We may be required to display an equivalent acknowledgement if we
mention other packages.)
