Reference is made to the previous report
No updates to submitted licenses still under consideration apart from
what is said here.

Eclipse Public License version 2.0


Comments: No feedback from the list on EPL 2.0 in the past month.

Recommendation: Approval, unless someone raises an objection over the
next few days. 

Hooyami License Version 1.0

Submission: https://lists.opensource.org/pipermail/license-review/2017-July/003058.html
and see the followup from the submitter:

Comments: Reaction has been negative, both on textual clarity and
proliferation grounds.

Recommendation: No action at this time, but I encourage the submitter
to withdraw the submission in its current form and consider using an
existing OSI-approved license, such as the MIT license.
