Intel Open Source License too:
We had hoped that doing this would lead to a wave of other retirements, but guess that didn't really happen too much.

If we're in "while we're at it" mode, I sent the following email a
year ago, suggesting four changes to the license list:
I was poking at the licenses list, and came across some licenses which
appear to belong in the "Licenses that have been voluntarily retired"
* CUA Office license: per their website, the project was dissolved
and they requested that the license be 'withdrawn from the OSI list'.
* Sun Public License v 1.0: Simon says this is officially retired:
* CA TOSL: can no longer find essentially any references to this on
the CA website; appears to have been written to cover the official
source release of Ingres in 2004, but Ingres has since moved to
GPL. Not sure this counts as voluntarily retired, per se, but does
seem to have basically vanished off the net (other than the OSI
* Ricoh Public Source License: can't find any references to this on
the ricoh website, and the site and projects it was originally
intended to work with (risource.org) appears to be AWOL, and as best
as I can tell no one distributes any code under this license. Same as
above: maybe not voluntarily retired, but basically vanished from the
net other than OSI.

slide deck; third deck is historical information.
