Oh, I see what you're saying now. I still need to have my morning cup
of coffee, so I'm a little slow. :)
Indeed, part of the metadata should contain the license (which was
added to the list by Paul in a previous post), and the license should
meet a minimum "openness" standard before it can be accepted.
I've actually been keeping a close eye on the Creative Commons in
relation to another project I've been involved with (but not at liberty
yet to speak about, because I didn't start it). I think creating a
selection of CC licenses and having them available to choose from would
be the way to go, the same way SourceForge allows you to choose from a
list of licenses (or at least, that's how I understand it works).
