Note that I said GPL or equivalent. Specifically these sections make
it GPL equivalent:
c) Provide all the changes, including source code, with every copy of
the modified Vim you distribute. This may be done in the
form of a
context diff. You can choose what license to use for new
add. The changes and their license must not restrict others
making their own changes to the official version of Vim.
e) When the GNU General Public License (GPL) applies to the
you can distribute the modified Vim under the GNU GPL version
any later version.
It's not identical to the GPL license, but the Apache license isn't
identical to MIT either and I grouped them together.
