Hi Rafael,
I'm the author, and looking at the file, it seems like I neglected to
copyright it. Actually, that file is out of date, as is the corresponding
pdf file, and should probably just be removed. I tried to remove it from o-f
back when o-f was on CVS, but I couldn't get rid of it (if my memory serves
me). I'll try now to remove it from SVN. Otherwise, I'm happy to license it
GPL or the GNU free document license, whatever is easiest. I'll do this and
the dependency thing for econometrics package now.
Cheers, Michael
