I am very glad people are starting to work on these again.

Please join me in avoiding the terms "MIT license" and "BSD license",
because each one i ambiguous.  There are four licenses this might refer to

* Original BSD license.
* Modified BSD license.
* X11 license.
* Expat license.

or it might even be something else.  We can't really tell.

See for information
on those four licenses.

Who is developing these programs, and what do they do?  We might want
to ask them not to use any of the four licenses that "MIT/BSD"
probably means.  Those are not good choices of license for new
