Hi there, great work!

These two links would be great additions with some explanatory text.  My
understanding is that the intent over time (after all licenses are
listed) of your pages is to become similar to the pages from the

        FSF   http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html


        OSI   http://www.opensource.org/licenses/index.html

This is VERY useful, thanks for taking on this task.
