Lots of people just seem a bit passive aggressive on the nature of this
subject. OSI is a non-profit business entity. It is within the board's
legal right to reject a license even if it complies with OSD. I know that.
I feel like this new variation is compliant, and haven't got enough
feedback as to why it is not. However, I'm okay w/ moving this to
license-discuss if you find that as a more fit medium to seek feedback in
regards to the revised version.

> Hi Andrew,
> Thanks for your submission. I've been following the discussion and now

> Given the discussion here suggests we're a long way from consensus, you
> may find the License Discuss list to be a more appropriate forum.
> The License Review process is highly time consuming and relies on the
> generosity of volunteers from the community. Many of those same people
> chime in on License Discuss.
> You may find that heeding their earnest feedback will go a long way toward
> retaining an audience that's willing to help, and indeed, may find that it
> also brings you closer to producing a license worthy of adoption.
> Hope that helps ☺️
> Wishing everyone happy holidays and all the best for the New Year!
