[tex-live] License selection

Hi all,
I have developed a package for typesetting the Prague Bulletin of
Mathematical Linguistics. The package should be freely available for
all authors. The editors intend to suggest their authors to use
TeXLive. Since the autors are not TeX experts and may not be able to
install additional packages, they would be happy if the package could
be distributed with TL (and possibly with other distributions). There
is now a question of a license. The free licenses allow modification
and redistribution of modified version. However, the editors will
always use the unmodified version which will be actively maintained.
Thus I would like to know what license should be chosen for this
package so that it can be included in most TeX distributions but
reduce the risk that some authors would receive some modified version
which differs too much from the one used by the journal editors.
