That's fine with me - a "no" is better than ambiguity.

Does the same policy apply to JCP, Sun, IBM, etc licenses  - i.e. not 
allowed unless a board decision to allow is made ? Or is it only for LGPL?

Or more clearly - is there a list of licenses that the board approved ?

BTW, I agree that "not allowed unless specifically permited" is a 
good policy regarding licenses, and I'm glad someone finally 
stated this with the board hat on ( even if only for LGPL - but 
that's a start :-)
