Thanks. I'm not subscribed to the legal-discuss list, could you tell me 
when you'll have an answer ?

No, there was no formal copyright statements, just authors lists like 
you would find in a mathematical paper. In fact I had to dig around in 
the sites in order to find the licences. In Mantissa, I put the text of 
theses licenses in the Javadoc at class level and displayed the original 
authors names in @author statements.
