We recently received a question asking, "What are the licenses for the
OSI approved license texts themselves?"

Currently the OSI website, including the pages with license text,

"The content on this website, of which Opensource.org is the author, is
licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International
"Opensource.org is not the author of any of the licenses reproduced on
this site. Questions about the copyright in a license should be
directed to the license steward."

We would like to add the following information to each license page:

- License Copyright: [Name of person/organization who submitted the
license, and year submitted]
- License License: [The license e.g. CC-BY-SA, for the text of the
- License Contact: [Contact info for person/organization who submitted,
or currently manages, the license]
If you have any of the above, can you please share it with me?

I will also be searching the OSI License Review / Discuss archives and
OSI Board meeting notes for references to try to collect the same info.
It would be nice if the people on this list could provide any
information they may have, so I can confirm any information I may

Thanks for your help,
