Greeting Approval Team,

I am submitting our license for approval under the OSD provided by your 
organization. I have already submitted the legal analysis. 

Our license was based from the BSD template on your website. I have added 
several clauses to the list of conditions, specifically in the area of how 
developers should handle modifications, and about potential issues with 
exporting any form of software which may have restrictions due to export 
laws.

Software distributed under our license should have no conflicts with any 
existing licenses agreements nor should software which may be derived or 
combined from software distributed under our license.

I believe this sums up my approval request. I am looking forward the 
discussion.
