Thank you Russell,  as we going to use cryptographic autonomy license 1.0
(as we decided till now),  I am unable to find an actual license file on
your website. Can you point me in a direction where I can download it?

As we are open source , we don't want someone to criticize us about our
license, open source work, and the efforts  we have done so we prefer to
use OSI approved license mentioned above. If in the future we have enough
budget for open source project, we shall hire attorney and draft license
for approval but till then we'll use the above license. (because AAL and
CPAL are likely to be removed)

Thanks again for clarification about `open source` word and its use case,
