I would like to have our CMGPL license approved by the OSI.
As per your instructions the following info:

1. HTML page
License can be found at http://www.hsdev.com/cmgpl.html Format is plain
makeinfo html output.

2. Existing license relation
The CMGPL is an slight adaptation of the GPL to suit it better to our 
business needs. Notably the following changes were made (cosmetic 
changes not included)

- deleted the preamble, we will inform our customers in other ways, we 
feel the license is the wrong place to do this.
- Changed section 3 first paragraph from
...Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:...
...Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do at least one of the 
-deleted Section 3c
- in the appendix deleted the following text.
"This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program 
into proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you 
may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications 
with the library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Library 
General Public License instead of this License"

3. Conjunction
Except for the deletion of 3c this license has exactly the same terms 
and conditions, we think, as the GPL.

4. Publication
I'm subscribed to the mailing list license-discuss and posted this to 
the discuss list myself.
