"For a program to be "open source", you must be able to, among other
things, change the source and redistribute it. DJB prohibits
distribution of modified code and so programs which are so-licensed are
not open source."
In other words, people who aren't the Free Software Foundation or OSI also
agree that Dan's license isn't an Open Source license. As I said, though,
whether that's good, bad, or irrelevant is up to the administrator. It's
just something that many people aren't aware of but would be interested in.
