What's the licence of zsh

Hi All,

Is there anyone who could kindly tell me the licence of zsh, GPL or others? I searched keyword "license", but get no any statements related to GPL. Thanks.

Unless otherwise noted in the header of specific files, files in this
distribution have the licence shown below.

However, note that certain shell functions are licensed under versions
of the GNU General Public Licence. Anyone distributing the shell as a
binary including those files needs to take account of this. Search
shell functions for "Copyright" for specific copyright information.
None of the core functions are affected by this, so those files may
simply be omitted.
