The OSI is concerned that too many different types of licences make it harder for developers to produce and market open source software innovations.
The OSI, which gives official open source status to licences, plans to give preferred status to only a small number of the 50 types of licence it has approved. No decisions on which licences will be given preferred status have so far been made.
The OSI board has formally adopted three licence provisions: they must be clearly written and easy to understand; be reusable; and not be duplicates.
