My recommendation is to go back to NASA, asking if this will be
relicenced under NOSO 2.0, if/when OSI states that that license is OSI

It has been at least four years, and maybe even five, since NASA
submitted that license. I doubt anybody expected approval to take so
long, especially since NASA appears to not know what the issues
triggering the denial are.

When that license was first submitted, my impression was that NASA,
along with sub-contractors, and organisations they work with, were going
to do a wholesale license migration, from the hodgepodge they currently
utilise, to NOSO 2.0, unless otherwise prohibited by law, from so doing.
