Thanks for the heads up Matt! Guess my searching wasn't quite as
comprehensive as I hoped.

I noticed that the AGPL isn't listed in the issue queue. Has there
been any moves to approve it? or deny it?

Perhaps related - Would anyone be able to provide some advice on the
ability/issues to migrate a project using the Honest Public License
(HPL) to the AGPL?
