Good afternoon,

We are using fsck_msdosfs in one of our products, and are trying to
comply with the conditions in the correct way. We get a bit confused
with the copyright notices, and hopy you are able to clarify this for
us. Inside the source files found at
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sbin/fsck_msdosfs/ , we find
the following copyright text
************************************************************************

Then, under the Free BSD Legal Notices, under which it seems that
fsck_msdosfs resides, we find the following FreeBSD Copyright notice:

How do these two copyright texts relate to each other, and how do we use
them in the correct way? This is particularly relevant to sort out when
we do redistribution in binary, where the copyright text needs to be
provided. Do we provide both, or just the one or the other?

Looking forward to your clarification.
