Hi Ludo,

Thank you for reviewing and pushing.

If you have a tight slot of time, you could add the 2 missing files:


I think they are on your machine 'ribbon'. ;-)

To be exact, a subset of POSS. :-)

Yes, they were not, at all! Interesting "exercise". :-)

Currently, Open <Stuff> sounds to people; they have a vague concept in
mind because all the marketing around.

For example, the French archive says: "The open archive HAL". :-)

Another example, ReScience uses "open" [1] and speaks about "open
source community" [2].


Yet another example from Software Heritage [3]: Open Access repo, Open
Data Sets repo, Open Source repo.


Well, the message is: everything needs to be transparent; and Open
<Stuff> is the vector to hook the message. I am not sure that enter in
the technical debate about free / libre vs open is relevant when
speaking about Reproducible Science.

Philosophically speaking, the code used in Science needs only freedom
0 and freedom 1 to then claim be Reproducible Science, IMHO.
And it is what I understand from the paragraph 'Proprietary Software'
of your article [3]. ;-)


The conclusion is: naming is hard! ;-)

Hope to be able to discuss more on these topics here or there because
they really matter.

Thank you again.
