License Notes

While this is clearly just an MIT variant, the PostgreSQL community felt strongly enough about this license that they submitted a template form of the variant that they use for OSI approval and it was granted in February 2010.

Please note that only licenses which use this _EXACT_ text, with <YEAR> and <ORGANIZATION> substituted in can be considered to be under the PostgreSQL license. Similar licenses are almost certainly MIT and NOT PostgreSQL.
