[ Please discuss this license. Graziano reports that the only change
from the Zope license are terms 7 and 8. -russ ]
we would like to start an open source project on a product called
the 1st version of the license is at
the most similar license is the ZOPE public license. the changes occur
for the "Integrity of The Author's Source Code" - point #4 of OSD.
according with this point, we prefer that the free distribution of
source and binary would be granted with the release of official versions
and modifications can be installed using the patch files only. the
developers community will check and test all the patches in order to
release the new official version including all new features (tested and
with a sufficient documentation).
thanks for ur time ...
