It's me again; as discussed in the thread around
Message-ID: <16748.10416.164168.938434 at desk.crynwr.com>
I'm now submitting the first batch of particular licences
used for one of the sub-project spin-offs off the MirOS
project: MirbsdKsh (http://wiki.mirbsd.de/MirbsdKsh).
Most of the code is inherited from pdksh, which was placed
into the public domain by their original authors.
The other licences attached are:
- the MirOS licence template, which I have already
submitted for fast-track approval after a suggestion
by John Cowan in
- a wording variant of the 2-clause BSD licence:

- the manual page has an original 3-clause BSD licence
by the University (with the advertising clause removed)
- As recommended by http://catb.org/%7Eesr/Licensing%2DHOWTO.html I, as
project leader, assert a (non-registered) collective-work copyright
on the whole work including all modifications
After I get the Okay, I will put the full OSI Certified notice in the
manual page, in the NOTES section.
Thanks in advance,
 The other offsprings will be handled later in separate mails,
after this one is through, and you got both the MirOS template
and the ISC/OpenBSD template approved, to reduce the (partially
 When it's approved, I will look over all files to which an
earlier version of the template (with the typos) is attached,
and fix them, of course.
I will also put the required HTML-rendered version online.
