I have some questions about a couple of licenses I ran across during a
license review:

 - The Frontier Artistic License was apparently submitted but not
   approved (no surprise, its the exact same license with a few words
   changed).  However, I didn't find anything about it in the archives.
   Can you rell me whether it was formally rejected, or whether the
   submission was just ignored, or discussed but not forwarded to the

 - Regarding the above, the author's web page about the license
   (<URL:>) still includes
   the text "Submitted to for Open Source Initiative
   certification", which I find a bit disingeniuous, especially if it
   was formally rejected.  Perhaps a polite letter from the board would
   be in order.

 - The awful, awful SSLeay license: has it ever been submitted for

 - The original SSH license: has it ever been submitted for approval?
   (I assume not)

 - The ITU and IJG licenses: have they ever been submitted for approval?
