This request is about WTFPL license, full text at http://sam.zoy.org/wtfpl/
This license has made it to "version 2", and apparently fits in
"Legacy Approval" submission type - freshmeat has 9 projects listed
under this license (see http://freshmeat.net/browse/1008/ ), I don't
know if it goes under "popular" proliferation by OSI standards (maybe
The reason why this license needs OSI approval (and also "Link to
earlier public discussions") can be seen at
- after two years of silence sourceforge suddenly denies me the right
to license my project under WTFPL... ha. Well, sourceforge registers
many new projects every day, and I believe that you guys just can't
allow the lack of OSI approval be used as an excuse to deny all that
project authors a right to use the license of their choise, can you.
