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

CC0 *is* an open source License, approved by OSI. Itâs as close to public domain as you can get. I have no issues with it being officially accepted by OASIS. In fact, our policy should be that any OSI license is OK. But I can see the advantage of keeping the list down to a manageable number.

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,
