As mentioned, I don't like the term either. But I was not about to push for a change to the name of the policy at the same time. We might do that in the future...
Very good to see a functional minimum of SHOUTY CAPITALS in the warranty disclaimer. Well done!Not all the XEPs reflect the new license yet. That will be fixed soon.The terms as published would appear to me to result in works that are DFSG-free, despite the noted problems with terminology. Hurrah! Thanks again for your significant efforts in this area, and congratulations on the progress made so far.
Thanks for the feedback provided on this list -- your suggestions improved the final result.
