I'm not mistaken, everyone knew that the Vaccine license was from me before
the vote. I accepted the penalty. The penalty process should have ended at

I have not returned to license-review since then, nor do I plan to. This is

If it is the OSI's sentiment that every  submission must go through the
process and be treated as honorably as any other, and that I should not
warn people in this forum about the way they can actually hurt developers
with a poorly constructed license, I will no longer do so. It's your party.
I can talk about such things elsewhere.
