Yes, the objection is to the current policy - we should not just be
rubber-stamping FSF licenses, since their licensing requirements are
different to TNF's - principally more stringent and onerous.

We see a number of companies who will not use GPLv3 or LGPLv3 software.

We see a number of BSD projects which will not include GPLv3 or LGPLv3

Both of these decisions have been taken following legal advice.

I think we should respect the wishes of those entities, and remove
GPLv3 and LGPLv3 from the current list, and also remove AGPLv3 too.
