magnum -

I noticed that you started using "No Rights Reserved" lately.  I think
it'd be better for us to have fewer different wordings of this in the
JtR source code.  Specifically, I'd appreciate it if you switch to the
wording recommended here:

http://openwall.info/wiki/john/licensing

That is, make it something like:

---
This software is Copyright (c) 2012 magnum, and it is hereby released to
the general public under the following terms:

Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without
modification, are permitted.
---

If you really want to shorten it, you can use:

---
Copyright (c) 2012 magnum

Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without
modification, are permitted.
---

This is still longer than your "No Rights Reserved", but it is
unambiguous and it is a clear subset of the BSD license with only
restrictive clauses removed.
