In early May the ACE License was amended to address these issues.
On 5/15/2005 A conversation between Doug Schmidt (the author of the ACE
License) and Rod Dixon regarding the license had Rod Dixon saying "I
think this works; the suggested change is fine." and was posted to the
ace-users mailing list
I resubmitted the amended ACE License to license-discuss on 5/15/2005
and got no response.
I asked license-discuss for status on 5/25/2005 and got no response.
I asked license-discuss for status again on 8/9/2005 and go no response.
I'm really confused about the process at this point ...
