SVN commit 580959 by neundorf:

Add a short version of the BSD copyright notice.

Is it ok that way ?
I just reference licenses/BSD without further explanation
where to find the licenses/ subdirectory. 
This is legal stuff, so I could need some good advice from somebody 
who knows this better than me.
The BSD license in kdelibs/licenses/BSD also doesn't contain the no-endorsement clause:

#  The name of the author may not be used to endorse or promote products 
#  derived from this software without specific prior written permission.

Is there a special reason why it doesn't ?

If I would like to have this clause too, do I need to add another license file to licenses/ or should
I simply put it in the same directory as the cmake scripts ?
Then one could simply state:

# This code is available under the BSD license, see the accompanying cmake-script-licensing.

So, what's the correct and best way to deal with this ?
