How about the attached patch? It's the simplest and shortest sentence I 
can think of that would work for us. CC0 would also work for us 
technically, though it's not as simple to word.

The sentence that Clive D.W. Feather proposed is problematic, as it 
might easily be construed to forbid the processing that our Makefile 
needs to do with the file. We need something that clearly says it's OK 
for us to take the leap-second data in the file and do whatever we want 
with it.
