As another suggested, I would also recommend continuing this discussion on the license-discuss mailing list which can be subscribed to at https://opensource.org/lists

I must admit your response is incredibly difficult to understand.  I *think* you’re suggesting the AndroWish website was merely an example of a code that would fail to comply with MCopdl, which I don’t think is helpful in understanding MCopdl.

Again, perhaps a poor example …  but that site is literally the built-in web interface to a Fossil repository.  That means all files are accessible via the fossil interface using the fossil application and other tools, via the web interface using standard web browsers or other tools and the latter even permits direct download from within the web page.

That’s not to suggest that method of delivery is “convenient”, but saying the sources are not accessible in the manner you described is flatly incorrect.

As mentioned, the language errors are not minor or few.  I suggest you retract the license from consideration and move to the license-discuss mailing list for further discussion.
