Hi Bryan,

I'll try to answer all your questions.

  I was just wondering about YUI, since it is a presentation layer
  dependency can it be considered "Optional"? In this case we'll have to
  re-work some existing code to provide plain text table output by
  default, plus, have our optional YUI formatted presentation for Drag &
  Drop rich output. I hope that solution would be ok.

If you are going to give a graphical interface to the user you may try
to use a GPL-Compatible option, this is because the user will normally
use the GUI instead of any text based interface. Try to not use YUI
because it's a library, this mean that you will require development on
your application before use it, we think that the development must be
oriented to free software solutions. Please don't use YUI and try to
find a free software solution.

  For JSON we mistakenly lumped the free Java wrapper library into JSON
  itself, but as mentioned on the main JSON site the source code is free
  and open:

In fact, if you take a look to the license of this java implementation
you will see that the license isn't GPL-Compatible because it has this

        The Software shall be used for Good, not Evil.

Which violate the freedom 0 this mean that isn't a GPL-Compatible
license. Maybe there's another implementation of JSON using java and
you surely will find one of them that use a GPL-Compatible license.

  This is essential feedback because it'll help us to set more realistic
  estimates on our launch dates. Already, I believe we'll have to push
  it out by at least 2-3 months. We do want to launch with the license
  attached if possible.

We are here to help and teach how to use the license with the
software, so don't worry that while we can we will answer any
question. For the moment I'll close your submission and you will able
to re-submit your project when you have made the changes that I
suggest you.
