As an aside: Don't forget that the absence of a license does not make the work explicitly "free for all", quite the opposite:

The chances of the original authoring coming back and asking for a takedown etc are usually low for this kind of thing, but still better to go ahead and get a them to set a minimal license which you can then use with the project to carry it forward.

We recently had a project for work using a 3rd party library form GitHub and asked the author to add a license so we could, in the end, safely use it in a soon-to-be release public project.
