Our request is pending from January 14 2000 , which complied with the
stated policy of sending the request to license-approval. John Cowan actually
stated it should be added to the list for consideration in September 2000

Correct. Fortunately with respect to my SourceForge concern, this has not
been a problem with them; for example HTML Tidy is now a SourceForge project.
It's just rather confusing, and slightly awkward with respect to this whole
OSI process and the classification of "other/proprietary" on SourceForge. But
there's ultimately bigger problems in the world <smile/>.
