Subject: Re: Adding CC-0 to OASIS Open Projects

Oh, this is a tricky one. CC-0 is, like public domain, not considered open source. The authors withdrew CC-0 from the OSI license review process before it could be approved.

Some details on that here: https://opensource.org/node/878

I highly recommend the OP work with the auditing firm to find an OSI approved license that their lawyers/HR people find to be an acceptable alternative to using CC-0.

One of our current Open Projects needs to set up a repo under the CC-0 license, which is not one of the seven OASIS currently supports. (The OP wants to accept a major technical contribution from a large auditing firm which has a conflict-of-interest policy that requires them to only contribute under CC-0.)

Before we recommend to the OASIS Board that CC-0 be added, we wanted to see if Advisory Council members have any thoughts--pro or con--on CC-0.

This is very time-sensitive, so please let us know as soon as possible if you have any views on this.

Many thanks,
