Where do you read this? I know that the licencing of jabberd14 is
confusing so I might be confused as well. But as far as I can see in
licence-header.txt, you only have to remove the JOSL licence if you want
to distribute only under the GPL. If you do not remove it, you will
distribute it under both licences.

 * Alternatively, the contents of this file may be used under the terms of the
 * GNU General Public License Version 2 or later (the "GPL"), in which case
 * the provisions of the GPL are applicable instead of those above.  If you
 * wish to allow use of your version of this file only under the terms of the
 * GPL and not to allow others to use your version of this file under the JOSL,
 * indicate your decision by deleting the provisions above and replace them
 * with the notice and other provisions required by the GPL.  If you do not
 * delete the provisions above, a recipient may use your version of this file
 * under either the JOSL or the GPL.

Tot kijk
