Re: Deprecate Entessa in favour of Apache-1.1?
Hi Matija,toggle quoted message Show quoted text
Hmm… I thought we had put a Note in Entessa explaining this, but apparently not. Perhaps there is another case like this that I am thinking of:
The reason we have Entessa on the SPDX License List is because OSI approved it as a separate license. See https://opensource.org/licenses/Entessa
And SPDX License List endeavored to add any and all licenses ever approved by OSI in the early days, so… here we are. We didn’t have the matching guidelines established back then, I don’t think, but in any case, it has been on the OSI approved list for a very long time (as in before SPDX License List birth, I believe). OSI considers it a “vanity” license, in so many words - which is probably why we don’t have any markup on the acknowledgment statement.
Would a Note explaining this suffice?
