Thanks.  So, by my understanding, if we wait to do the condense as one
of first steps for 4.3, then the "4.2 release" can be present itself
in terms of its predecessor.  I have really enjoyed having that during
4.2 and think it's relevant even after release; it seems good to keep
delta's with the prior version in each release, especially since it's
not very costly.

That is only an old, incidental copy of the license, not the official
statement about license from Squeak.
