don't have any copyright notices, as well as tests and examples are
covered under the Whatever License. See LICENSE_whatever.txt for details."

License: (GPLv2 or GPLv3) and BSD and zlib and Boost and Whatever

answered by the existing guidelines:
(The bottom line is yes, you do use parentheses for grouping).
