Subject: List of Open Source Licenses

To all OSI license reviewers:

I have listed below all "open source" licenses that have been submitted to
OSI for approval.  If you have submitted a license that does not appear on
this list, please let me know.  I also list those licenses that have already
been approved.

You'll note that many of the licenses are simply entered as text within an
email sent to the distribution list.  This is an awkward procedure that
makes it easy for readers to lose track of your license.  (I'm also guilty
of this; I submitted a license for approval that was hidden in email.)
Those of you who have done this, please resubmit your license with a URL to
the place where the license can be displayed with a browser; PDF or HTML
formats generally work.

Obviously the OSI board cannot review all these licenses immediately.  The
license reviewers must set some priority.  We welcome suggestions on how to
prioritize this list.  For example, if your license is basically a copy of
an already approved license with minor changes, you can save us work by
identifying those changes.  Alternatively, just use an existing license!

Thanks for your cooperation and understanding as we clean up the license
approval backlog.
