Ontology files are both prosa (=text) and software.
Years ago we thought it would therefore be wise to double-license
ontologies as CC-BY and BSD.
this is also the license that was since many months here:
why didn't you copy it from there? - any reasons to ignore the wiki page
or weren't you aware of it?
anyway, I am also fine bith BSD, if everyone else agrees that "in the
future, double-licensing is ok".
but then, change the wiki page.
the "base" folder may bite us back later.
i.e. it contains a mix of ontologies we consider "base" such as dcterms
and rdf and rdfs.
someone may ask: why is OWL not there? why is skos not there?
* _may_ change it to subfolders "rdfs" "rdf", "dcterms", etc.... - would
be more "correct".
* leave as is and go on - I prefer that. if other people ship other
ontologies as installation packages, they can come up with other
top-folder names besides shared-desktop-ontologies
for the sake of saying it: I of course hold the flag up and say "we
should call them shared-oscaf-ontologies" but I am of course as happy
with the current name.
