The Cryptographic Autonomy License is one step closer to being approved by the OSI board, having been approved by the review committee. http://lists.opensource.org/pipermail/license-review_lists.opensource.org/2020-February/004660.html
I think this is a big mistake, though I blame myself partly for not weighing in previously. I will be spending time over today and tomorrow writing why I think this is "a big mistake with good intentions but potentially disastrous results"
@cwebber Holy crap. Cpoyright of APIs? Oh no.
@cwebber I've managed to pull up the license text, but I'm not clear what's good or bad about it. Can you expand a bit on what this license is and why you don't like it please?
@alcinnz Yes, I'll be doing an in-depth review of it and the surrounding concerns shortly... I hope to get it written up today, but more realistically it will go up tomorrow.
