Yes, only in the case of fully public domain do our approaches differ. Our
view was that a project that never had a contribution from a non-federal
entity would likely not reach a critical mass of adoption anyway. This
isn't perfect, but the best we could come up with. I'm glad though that at
least part of the problem has a clear path forward.


I'm now encountering a slightly different situation in government, is there
a way to ensure modifications and fixes are made available to the
originator in a limited distribution scenario? Something like a limited
distribution GPL, but unlike before, there would be no non-government
contribution's copyright to piggyback off of.
