Hi Rick,

I am working on getting the CPAL applied to our code and for a new 
release to be out on our site for download. It was on me to get it done, 
and I got sidetracked a bit by hosting BarCamp.  At this point, I mainly 
need to run our draft of the license as we are going to apply it by our 
lawyer and get his feedback.

I agree with you that we should not have that big OSI logo on our web 
site until we put the license properly on our code and release it.   
That's a bit embarrassing, and I'm sure was meant in good faith.     I 
removed it for now; thanks for pointing that out, and let's hope I put 
it back (with justification) by next week.

Our application of the license to our own code will be intended not to 
be overly annoying or intrusive, in short, fairly flexible with its 
requirements of attribution on the UI.
