The Cryptographic Autonomy License is one step closer to being approved by the OSI board, having been approved by the review committee.

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 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.
