Those are prerequisites for project that people want to host on the
GNOME infrastructure. This has been written by the sysadmin team.

This comes from the release team, and this is what Luis helped write.
It's actually pasted from GEP-10:

(I prefer to ignore the "free" vs "open source" vs "free/open source" vs
"free and open source" vs... topic for now, until I read all mails and
make sure I don't say stuff already mentioned)

On a general note, it might make sense to create a page listing the
licenses we're usually using in the project, and in which case to use
them. And list this license page from those ProjectPrerequisites and
ModuleProposing. I'd love to have something like for GNOME. Is there
anyone who would like to work on this?
