[subject changed to refer to 2.0]




Many thanks for drafting this.


I think that it is basically fine, but I have suggested some amendments to the Google document to:


·         Give a stronger sense of recognition that Surrey have been prepared to make the effort to seek conformance and to make changes to their original license to ensure it. 

·         Explicitly mention the point that on re-publication one of the requirements of the Surrey license would be attribution, because the point of difficulty may have been a simple confusion between applying the license and applying the attribution statement to the derivative work.

·         Encourage Surrey’s participation in our group in the future.


However I do not feel strongly about any of these, so please accept or reject them at your discretion.

As promised, I have drafted a letter to the City of Surrey regarding the Open Government License - Surrey 2.0 approval.  I plan to send this out on Friday of this week.


I have included a section to raise our concern over the confusion for people publishing works based on the license.  Please review and feel free to comment / edit.

I went ahead and implemented this as Surrey 2.0 has been approved. Over
my dead vote. ;-)

Next to the Surrey 2.0 entry I linked to the archived email stating that
approval was obtained.

If anyone wants to do some web maintenance work, I think it'd be great
to find corresponding to approval of each of the licenses on
http://opendefinition.org/licenses/ and link them.
