Minor correction.

The BSD License is not Category X.  The commonly-used BSD license is a permissive license,
just like the MIT license.

However, LGPL *is* Category X, not Category B.

The classifications and nuances are explained at <>.

Category B code can be a number of licenses, like LGPL and MPL. We cannot
however use e.g. GPL or BSD, the reason is that they limit downstream
projects from e.g. making a derivative and sell it...something we at ASF
really like when it happens.
