        [ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider
        [ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,
        [ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example.

    Tahoe-LAFS is licensed to the public under the "Transitive Grace Period Public
    Licence 1.0" [*]. Tahoe-LAFS is Free and Open software. The "Transitive Grace
    Period Public Licence" is an Open Source licence.

Is that true?  Or is it just a hypothetical example?

I don't recall studying this license.  I am not sure what it says.  It
is not in our license-list.html page.  So I don't know whether it is a
free software license, and if it isn't, then Tahoe-LAFS is not free

If you send me the text of this license, I can study it.
