Snap package licenses

Hello all,

I'm just about to upload the ldc2 snap, but have one last question first.  LDC 
itself is released under the terms of the BSD license, but some components it 
links to are released under other licenses (Boost, Artistic License and LGPL). 
All of this is covered under the setup/license.txt file.

However, the submission form wants a specific license.  Would BSD be adequate in 
this case or is it better to specify 'Other open source' ... ?

Thanks & best wishes,

     -- Joe
