I won't repeat myself here, but, as you already know, I am *not* happy
to see another project that adopts the GNU AfferoGPL v3: I think that
this license choice makes the work non-free...

Just a couple of quick comments:

https://github.com/tip-o-the-hat/fmn/blob/master/GPL-FMN-TERM
describes itself as "an additional permissive term", but seems to
actually be an additional requirement.
I am under the impression that it should be considered a
"non-permissive additional term", as defined in the GNU GPL v3 (and in
the GNU AfferoGPL v3).

I am not sure I understand which is the category of allowed
non-permissive additional terms this one is intended to belong to.
Section 7 of the GNU (Affero)GPL v3 lists 6 categories (a through f) of
non-permissive additional terms that may supplement of the terms
written in the text of the license.
Which category should the FMN Term be considered belonging to?
