We are supportive of all Free Software and licenses which fit the
criteria of the necessary four freedoms. The Apache licence
qualifies as a Free Software license.

Of course there are differences in the Free Software licenses
I just wanted to point them out.

Your mail was definatly interesting for the list.
I am trying to make sure that the focus on Free Software of this

nasty little differences in proprietory software called "freeware"
or "freely" available and Free Software.
