I noticed that the issues mentioned by Engel Nyst back in November
haven't been addressed yet.

Zope Public License is at version 2.1 (approved by FSF) while OSI only
lists version 2.0.  According to the license submission, the changes
from 2.0 to 2.1 are minor.  Version 2.1 can be found here:

Regarding the wxWidgets/wxWindows license, https://www.wxwidgets.org/about/licence/
says that the rename of the license is still "pending approval".
Given that several years have passed in the meantime, it might make
sense to ask the project if they are still planning to change the name
of their license.
