well it seems you've violated your own license:
4.3. Modified Versions.
When You are an Initial Developer and You want to create a new
license for Your Original Software, You may create and use a
modified version of this License if You: (a) rename the license
and remove any references to the name of the license steward
(except to note that the license differs from this License); and
(b) otherwise make it clear that the license contains terms which
differ from this License.
~/star-1.5$ grep "Sun Microsystems" CDDL.Schily.txt
Sun Microsystems, Inc. is the initial license steward and may
also, this clause is very anti-BSD/very GPL:
3.1. Availability of Source Code.
Any Covered Software that You distribute or otherwise make
available in Executable form must also be made available in Source
Code form and that Source Code form must be distributed only under
the terms of this License. You must include a copy of this
License with every copy of the Source Code form of the Covered
Software You distribute or otherwise make available. You must
inform recipients of any such Covered Software in Executable form
as to how they can obtain such Covered Software in Source Code
form in a reasonable manner on or through a medium customarily
used for software exchange.
please take a look at the openbsd copyright policy:
and the license template for openbsd:
what you are presenting is not at all compliant with the BSD philosophy.
