Hi, I have send my license for approving, but no one is not even mention or
reply to me. My license allows modification to the software be copyrighted
by their authors and need not to follow the licesing terms described in the
license, also, it has the "and license" in permission list, which makes it
clear tha relicesing and sublicensing is granted, these are major
differences between Octopus License and other licenses (including copyfree
and copyleft and weak copyleft licenses), in fact, Octopus License has many
more technical differences to other licenses, but it fully follows the Open
Source Definition and conditions. Please, OSI, approve my license as soon
as possible, it has been a month that I cannot release my collaborative
open source project, because I want to use the Atlassian products which are
free for public open source projects but with the condition of being
licensed under an OSI-approved license.
Here is Octopus License:
