A license where code and other artifacts of a project that are licensed under
NOSA 2.0 could be legally imported into a project that is licensed under
Apache 2.0 (as defined at http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0), and
vice-versa. We want our code to be useful to the Open Source community;
having a license that is OSI approved, but incompatible with other licenses
is, in my not so humble opinion, a bad idea.
