Hello, I would like to package the software gogoc, a client to connect to a
IPv6 tunnel broker, but I have some doubts about its licensing.

The text of the license is pasted below. I see in the licensing guidelines
that "distributable" is not accepted, instead "Freely redistributable
without restriction" must be used, but there are some conditions.

Is this kind of license allowed?

Thank you.
