Thank you!

Two things..

1. I couldn't find an actual link to this page, just John's link in
his email. Should it be visible in the user interface to project

2. Are pages like http://kforge.net/project/ukparse/ cached, as I
can't see the change yet?

I would keep it simple, just include the major licenses, but have a
link saying "Want us to add a new license here?"

I suspect the set of licenses used by open knowledge people will be
quite different from the full list on opensource.org
