From: "Christoph Badura" <bad%netbsd.org@localhost> Add unlicense to default_acceptable_licenses. Per advice by wiz. This really surprised me, but having read the unlicense it seems ok. Our standard for DEFAULT_ACCEPTABLE_LICENSES is that either FSF has declared the license Free or OSI has declared it Open Source. I chose that intetionally to keep TNF out of the business of deciding purity/freeness. As far as I can tell neither entity has done so for this license. It seems licenses appear faster than they get evaluated, so pkgsrc is stuck with "obviously this would be judged Free/Open Source if they got around to it". There's a wrinkle with the theory that the concept of public domain doesn't exist in many countries - CC0 tries to address this with a fallback license. If anyone is plugged into the unlicense crowd it would be good to ask them to submit it for approval to FSF/OSI. I'm not objecting - just pointing out that deciding licenses meet the Free/Open Source standard ourselves is a slippery slope (one I may well have been guilty of starting down a bit at various points), and that being conservative is in order.
