Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-185) Classify 3-clause BSD ("simplified BSD")
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2013 00:30:36 GMT
Rob Weir created LEGAL-185:

             Summary: Classify 3-clause BSD ("simplified BSD") 
                 Key: LEGAL-185
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-185
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Rob Weir

This question was never really answered on the list, so I'm resubmitting it via JIRA to fit
the apparent workflow a little better.

The category-a list [1] currently includes:

"BSD (without advertising clause)."

It links to the 2-clause BSD [2].

My understanding is that the 4-clause BSD ("original BSD") [3] is the
one that is not permitted.

But nothing is said about the newer 3-clause BSD ("simplified BSD")  [4]

I propose that the "simplified BSD" should be added to the category-a list.
