Any software under this license[0] is non-free but is OSI Certified Open
Source Software. I don't particularly remember why; you can search the
archives, but the consensus was that it was non-free. We've found other
such software, I think, but this was the most glaring, because several
people were hoping that the license would be free (myself included).

IANAL, IANADD.
