I wonder if it would just be better to point to the "Free Software
Licenses" requirement page. Really, a checklist should recap on the
requirements and not seem to be another set of requirements.

"My license is compatible with 'Free Software Licenses' requirement"
and give a link to that anchor.

My bad for taking the thread off the mailing list.
