A project I'm maintaining is currently licensed under BSD-2-Clause-Views. I want to change it to the more widely used BSD-2-Clause.
What made me think about this at all is https://github.com/github/choosealicense.com/issues/136, which mentions that this license is specific to Free BSD software. The current license mentions the FreeBSD project explicitly.
The views and conclusions contained in the software and documentation are those of the authors and should not be interpreted as representing official policies, either expressed or implied, of the FreeBSD Project.
The project is in no way associated with FreeBSD. Is it fine to remove this notice without contacting previous contributors?
