So, do you think we should only list the OSI template version, using
their name, "zlib/libpng license" and not include the two
package-specific licenses on our initial list?

It appears that the license terms themselves are essentially the same,

Also, the libpng license includes the applicable attribution notices
for the various project versions.
Fedora treats these two licenses as functionally identical, and calls
them both "zlib".

The third license looks to just be a templated version of the zlib
