I've been talking to Russ Nelson and Steve Mallett about setting up a
separate threaded list where we can collect good FAQs about these
licenses. Anyone with ideas for getting such a FAQ together should
speak up. There's many more people than me who could contribute to such
a FAQ. I'm reluctant to write a preamble, as such, because it might
sound too much like interpreting my own words.
One other word to the wise: Treat every word in any license as "strange"
until you understand it in the context of that license. The OSL and AFL
aren't unusual in that respect.
