Hi all,

In June 2023, the License Review Working Group completed its work 
revising the license review process. There was an outstanding task that 
grew out of the Working Group, which was to create tags for the approved 
licenses that could be used as an aid in filtering approved licenses for 
their characteristics.

There are two stages to this task. The first stage is to create a list 
of tags to be attached to licenses. There is already a preliminary list 
so we should be able to complete this task in a fairly short period of time.

The second stage is to add the tags to the existing licenses. I would 
like to have as many people as possible willing to assist in this task. 
There are over 100 licenses and I would like to have each license 
reviewed by two people, a primary reviewer and verifier. You do not have 
to be a lawyer to participate, only comfortable reading and 
understanding open source licenses.

If you are interested in helping with this task, please respond to me 
only (to save spamming everyone).
