The OSI, to its credit, requires compliance with the following
procedures, in order to have a license approved:<br>
<a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://www.opensource.org/docs/certification_mark.html#approval">http://www.opensource.org/docs/certification_mark.html#approval</a><br>
This ensures that the community has an opportunity to thoroughly "vet"
a proposed license before it is OSI-approved.<br>
