Doesn't violate DFSG #2 _or_its_intent_. This clause is not unlike one in
the GPL.

I think this is meant to be a promise regarding future versions, but the

It's their right for any code they hold the copyright to, but what about

Not quite the right language. Do they intend to have the right to issue
modifications under "additional different licenses"? If so, they need to say it the way the NPL says it.

This is probably another "means well but needs some license education" case.
