I still do need OSI approval for the Transitive Grace Period Public  
Licence.  The intent of the TGPPL cannot be expressed clearly without  
adding requirements, namely the requirement to open-source derived  
works under the TGPPL.

I understand, and support, the desire to minimize licence  
proliferation, but my intent for the TGPPL cannot be expressed as a  
variation of an existing licence.
