This seems to be the only significant change with respect to version
1.0, which was discussed in the previous thread [1].
The clause has been rephrased slightly, and now it does not explicit
state that Yahoo! is to determine whether the licensee is in breach
(it did in version 1.0, see [2]).
However, I see (from his reply) that Josselin Mouette seems to think
that the rephrasing is not enough to make the issue vanish.

Anyway, the other issues with the YPL seem to still be present in this
new version 1.1 [3].

Hence, I still think that works under the YPL-v1.1 do *not* comply with
the DFSG.
