Hello all,

In Google SoC FAQ, it is explicitly stated that any project developed
during the SoC must be covered by a OSI approved license. AFAIK the
boost license has not been approved (nor has never been proposed for
approval). Could this be a problem, considering that projects developed
under boost mentoring are likely candidates for boost inclusion? Should
google be asked to make an exception for the Boost licence? Should
projects be released under dual licensing (for example a OSI license
like BSD + the Boost license)?
