Hi all,

I'm a bit late to the party.

If I'm not too late, one addition I'd like to propose to (4) is the
Boost license. It is similar to BSD/MIT without requiring attribution
with binaries. It is approved by OSI and by FSF.

The reason for this proposal is that the Boost project provides one of
the largest C++ codebases, and is not completely ignored by our
software. :)

> -Encourage AGPL for web apps

As for AGPL, +1 for making it the recommended option for web apps.
