based on the feedback and inputs from the OSI Community. We will address the
requirements of OSD#7 and OSD#10.
Thanks & Regards,

Subject: License Committee Report for December 2005
I'm the chair of the license approval committee. This is my report
for the current set of licenses under discussion. If anybody
disagrees with my assessment of the committee's conclusions, say so
Note: BCC'ed to the license submittors.
Title: MindTree Public License (MTPL)
License: in the submission.
Comments: Universal dislike. Rick Moen points out that since
copyright assignment must be done via a separate contract, it
fails OSD#7 (Distribution of License). By specifying a technology
("By clicking on the I Agree button below"), it violates OSD#10
(License Must Be Technology-Neutral).
Title: OSL/AFL 3.0
Comments: Rod Dixon recommends approval of both licenses
