That sounds like a nice interpretation, but I don't see that on
their site. I think you're assuming that they want to be open
source. I think that's a risky assumption.

Instead, what I see is that if you "redistribute", which they define
to include "copy to servers in different sites within an
organization", your software must be under an open source license,
such as the GPL, or any other conforming to the OSD.
