Subject Re: Two weeks left for comments! (was: [Request For Comment] Third-Party Licensing Policy)
Date Fri, 24 Mar 2006 22:08:57 GMT

Not distribute or automatically include - user has to manually choose to

That applies to the NPL, BCL, LGPL, GPL and I think any other licence that 
doesn't match the category A and B sections.
