It would be very useful for discussions like these if there were
a list of licenses which are open source but not free software,
I agree that the list would be useful for some things. However, I
would not want to publish it on gnu.org; that could undermine our main
message about those licenses: that they are not free licenses.
That way, rather than hand-wavy arguments, if somebody asks for
open-source-but-not-free, we can ask "Which of these licenses
do you actually want, and why?"
We can already do this, more or less. Once the person names a
specific license, http://www.gnu.org/licenses/license-list.html will
usually say whether it is free or not.
if the license is not listed there, please tell me. The FSF can look
at it and judge whether it is a free license.
