That's informative, but not sufficient to show that *software* under that
licence follows the DFSG.  (OSI has lawyers advocating licences, while
debian looks at software for users.)

Would you explain:-
 - can section 14 be a requirement to display an advert and must the
 openproj software display such an advert? (possible DFSG 3 problem)
 - why is NPL replaced with CPAL in section 13? (merely strange)
 - why is Original Developer added? (less worrying)
