Hi Pekka, Michael,

(sorry for opening a new thread - I wasn't subscribed to the list 
before and can't add the message references properly now.)

I got in touch with NLSF before I knew about Pekka's efforts and I 
think we're on a good way to resolve this particular issue. I am 
currently in touch with them about a statement regarding this particular 
clause of the license. It seems that for them a wide interpretation of 
this clause is acceptable. I will post updates about the progress of 
this discussion with NLSF.

Good to see that you've also addressed additional items such as adding 
NLSF to the Attribution page etc.
