 From that link:

The first thing we can do is to make sure that licenses calling 
themselves "open source" truly meet the Open Source Definition. In 2005, 
the OSI has suggested three guidelines that they would apply to proposed 
licenses to determine whether they should be OSI-approved.

   1. The license must not be duplicative
   2. The license must be clearly written, simple, and understandable
   3. The license must be reusable

Can we apply criteria 2 to the approval process for the GPL3?

Best Wishes,
Chris Travers
