"Identical to the Apache Software License..." assuming that 
description is correct (there is neither a URL nor an available 
attachment), I don't see a need to comment.

Looks fine, although it's worth pointing out that they might have 
to go to court to get 'bug fixes' - what one person calls a bug, 
another person calls a feature (so fixing that bug might be 
"removing that feature").

I think.  It's hard to tell, since I can't find that post in my 
archives and your webbing software helpfully removes all 
attachments (like the license).

That statement neither reflects the original stated purpose for 
this list, nor the manner in which it's been used in the past by 
the OSI.
