+## License
+
+Apache (in general) and Creadur (in particular) licenses its software to the public under
the [open source][15] [Apache License, Version 2.0][16]. Not every (third party) artifact
included in an Apache distribution is covered by this license but [policy][17] allows only
compatible licenses that are [well reported][18].  A [system][19] of [contributor license
agreements][20] and [software grants][21] ties everything together from the legal perspective.

-Each ASF project [reports][15] regularly to the [board][16], focusing on the health of the
