The OpenLDAP Foundation would like to release OpenLDAP 2.0
(and to OpenLDAP-devel) under a less restrictive license. This
goal is to promote wide use and redistribution of the Project's
software while still protecting our name (which is actually
done under trademark law) and minimizing liability of the
Foundation and its contributors.
Comments and suggestions encouraged.
