Hmmm... OK, I remember that a NOSA 3.0 was being drafted at one time, and I know it got put up on the list.  Does anyone want me to go poke at the NASA lawyers to see if they'll push on NOSA 3.0 again?  Alternatively, does anyone want to push on Congress to do something about copyright law so that the US Government can use the standard, already approved licenses?
