NTP/old style MIT licenses

hello,

I searched but I couldn't find it in the archives, so apologies if this
question has already come up.

Recently I looked at some old code from e2fsprogs:

https://github.com/tytso/e2fsprogs/blob/master/lib/et/et_name.c

The license is an old style MIT license:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing:MIT#Old_Style_.28no_advertising_without_permission.29

According to Dejacode (hi Philippe!) this license is equivalent to the
NTP license:

https://enterprise.dejacode.com/licenses/public/mit-old-style-no-advert/

but I have trouble finding any discussion about it. Am I looking in the
wrong place, or have these licenses not been under consideration yet? :-)
