Great work, Chris!
I actually have some textual feedback I missed last time:
"What FLO isn't:
> Some works are free to share and adapt, but not for commercial purposes.
> Others are free to share, but only verbatim. These works are not FLO,
> because they are too restrictive.
> Some works have their source code available, but normal copyright
> restrictions apply to modifications or re-uses of that code. These works
> are not FLO."
It reads a little funny to say "flo isn't… some works are"
"Works that are free to share and adapt but not for commercial purposes or
that are free to share but only verbatim are * not* FLO. Works that have
their source code available but where rights to share, modify, or freely
use the source remain reserved under normal copyright restrictions are also
*not* FLO. Such limitations are too restrictive to fit the FLO definition."
It doesn't have to be those wordings exactly. It's just important, I think,
to make the "not FLO" part be included in the sentences. I don't like
seeing stand-alone sentences that just say "some works have commercial
restrictions." with a separate sentence needed to later mention that those
are not FLO.
