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 change the subject line to be specific to the
license you want to discuss, and comment before the meeting of Nov. 6.


Submission: http://projects.opensource.org/pipermail/license-review/2013-June/000610.html

Comments: There have been some questions about the clarity of the
license, particularly the use of "requests" in a section that NASA
informs us is optional, and suggestions have been made to resolve
those concerns. However, it appears that no substantive concerns about
OSD-compliance have been raised.

Recommendation: Board to approve.

Tidepool Open Access to Health Data Software License

Submission: http://projects.opensource.org/pipermail/license-review/2013-October/000646.html

Comments: Discussion is ongoing and active.

Recommendation: No recommendation at this time.

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. No further
objections have been raised, but we have been asked not to approve
until the license is finalized.

Recommendation: Board to approve when license is finalized.
