Subject: RE: License for relaxng.sourceforge.net

I would like to suggest we switch to using the BSD license


for relaxng.sourceforge.net instead of the MIT license


The only substantive difference is that the BSD license has a 
"no-endorsement" clause:

"Neither the name of the <ORGANIZATION> nor the names of its contributors 
may be used to endorse or promote products derived from this software 
without specific prior written permission."

A potential corporate contributor informs me that the lack of a 
no-endorsement clause in the MIT license is a problem for them (I'll leave 
them to identify themselves if they so wish).  I can well understand this, 
and I can imagine other corporate contributors having a similar concern.
