Subject Re: HSQLDB as an acceptable license?
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2017 21:41:56 GMT

not be considering it as acceptable first. It does not make
sense to allow dependency on non-OSI approved licenses in
the 1st place.

advertising notions are moved into the 2nd clause, and the BSD-3-Clause's 2nd clause is split
into two clauses.
