Richard, thanks for your note. Actually I need to go back and look at my files to track that question down. It might take me a few days, but I will respond. Best, Heather

The license document starts out with
THIS LICENSE DEFINES THE RIGHTS OF USE, REPRODUCTION, DISTRIBUTION,
MODIFICATION, AND REDISTRIBUTION OF CERTAIN COVERED SOFTWARE (AS
DEFINED BELOW) RELEASED BY THE OPEN SOURCE ELECTIONS TECHNOLOGY
FOUNDATION ("FORMERLY THE OSDV FOUNDATION").
Given that this license is copyleft and thus must be used by licensors
of 'Modifications', and I assume also that you wouldn't want to
discourage projects unaffiliated with the OSET Foundation from using
the license, why have this language?
