Guidance on ACE License submission?

Apologies in advance for being unfamiliar with the OSI license 
submission process ...

I was wondering if the ACE License submission I made last week would be 
considered at this Thursday's OSI board meeting.

I've been following the deliberations presented in this list, but am 
unclear on whether existing "simple permissive" licenses would qualify 
for OSI certification if they are not appropriate for new projects as well.

The "Fedora Extras" folks are requiring all new projects to have an OSI 
certified license, and unfortunately this project has been using the 
existing license for many years and with many contributors.

I'd appreciate any feedback/guidance as to what should happen next ...
