License groups/MISC-FREE

From Gentoo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Miscellaneous licenses that are probably free software, i.e. follow the free software definition but are not approved by either FSF or OSI. Preferably on the long term these should be cleared up and moved to other sets. Licenses in this list should not appear directly or indirectly in FSF-APPROVED or OSI-APPROVED.
