It would be useful in the future if a statement of the policy of
ftpmaster could be made when such a determiniation of acceptability of
a work for main, especially when a work is reasonably controversial on
-legal. Adopting pre-existing arguments for or against specific
clauses of the license from -legal should be straight forward, and
it'd be easy for those in agreement to sign on to the opinion of
ftpmaster using their GPG keys.

Unfortunatly, the start of this thread and a terse message to
350624-done is the only publicly available information that I'm aware
of about the decision regarding this license.
