The Red Hat Exchange team requested that Fedora review the YPL as part
of its efforts to assist Zimbra with contributing to Fedora. Fedora
reviewed the license and was concerned that the termination provisions
of the YPL could be read to limit licensees’ rights in such a way that
would make the YPL not a true open source license.
The RHX team helped facilitate a discussion between Zimbra/Yahoo! and
the Red Hat and Fedora teams. The resulting feedback helped produce a
minor change in the wording of the license which was acceptable to Fedora.
