[ Pleaes review this license.  Should be like shooting fish in a
barrel, but still.  -russ ]

Dear Open Source Initiative Member,

On behalf of Network Appliance, Inc. I would like to request that the attached license be discussed for approval by the OSI. It is identical to the Common Public License 0.5, except that we have changed the stewardship to Network Appliance Inc, the governing law to the State of California, added one sentence to the introduction indicating that the license is derived from the Common Public License and added to the title that it is Network Appliance's adaptation. 

We are planning a series of open source projects and find the Common Public License fits our needs except for the few very minor changes indicated.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter. We look forward to your feedback.

This license may be discussed in public.
