AW: For Approval - German Free Software License

Hello list,

first of all: For me as a member of the administration department the
discussion was - on balance - verry interessing and motivational. 

So let's think about a compromise. I talked to Axel Metzger. We both
live with a modification of section 9 para. 2 saying something like:

"(2) The license board of the German Free Software 
License may put into force binding new versions 
of this License inasmuch as this is required and 
reasonable. New versions of the License will be 
be similar in its policies AND FOLLOW THE MODEL OF FREE AND OPEN
SOFTWARE. They will be published on the Internet site <http://www.d->
with a unique version number. The new 
version of the License becomes binding for you as 
soon as you become aware of its publication. 
Legal remedies against the modification of the 
License are not restricted by the regulations 
described above." 

Please note that I cannot decide those changes by myself. I could only
to proof and discuss it carefully with the other parties involved.

Best Regards,
Christiane Dusch
