This email is my report for licenses currently submitted to the OSI.
If anybody disagrees with my assessment of the list's comments or
conclusions, please say so before the meeting of April 3rd.

CeCILL 2.1

Submission: http://projects.opensource.org/pipermail/license-review/2012-May/000414.html

Comments: Several clarifying questions were asked, indicating the
license had been read, but no list members challenged the OSD
compliance of the license itself.

Recommendation: Board should approve.

EUPL 1.2

Submission: http://projects.opensource.org/pipermail/license-review/2013-March/000540.html

Comments: John Cowan reviewed the changes to the (earlier-approved)
versions of the EUPL, and found nothing objectionable.

Recommendation: Board should approve.

Submission: http://projects.opensource.org/pipermail/license-review/2013-January/000505.html

Comments: Richard Fontana and Bruce Perens objected to current
language on redistribution as a violation of OSD 9.
