Hi,

Not quite (AFAIK), there's no royalties allowed on redistribution but that doesn't mean you
can't charge for it either initially or when redistributing it as part of a bundle.

"The license shall not restrict any party from selling or giving away the software as a component
of an aggregate software distribution containing programs from several different sources.
The license shall not require a royalty or other fee for such sale." [1]

Perhaps change CD10 to this?

The project produces royalty free Open Source software.

Thanks,
Justin
