I agree.  If anybody other than the license submitter has strong arguments
as to (1) how the TGGPL meets the terms of the OSD in a legally clear and
understandable way, and (2) why the committee should recommend approval to
the Board, now would be the time.  From my reading of board and non-board
comments, the TGGPL does not appear to be a candidate for approval.
