If (and only if) clause 2.b is used instead of clause 2.a (the license
explicitly gives you a choice), then the license is Free but GPL
incompatible. I've added it to the list as "XSkat", use that in the

You do need to handle it differently. I suggest that you simply always
add a .0 to the end of the upstream version in the RPM package. You need
to do this, and not simply use the regular NVR to fulfill 2.b, because
the license explicitly specifies the versioning schema x.y.z, which is
different from how RPM displays it (x.y-z). Just add a dummy .0 to the
end of the version then increment the Release field like any other package.
The RPM changelog is sufficient to meet the other requirement of 2.b, to
"clearly state who last changed the program".
The license page for XSkat also covers this, in case any other program
uses this license (or code from XSkat).
