+Common Cure Rights Commitment
+Version 1.0
+
+Before filing or continuing to prosecute any legal proceeding or claim
+(other than a Defensive Action) arising from termination of a Covered
+License, we commit to extend to the person or entity ('you') accused
+of violating the Covered License the following provisions regarding
+cure and reinstatement, taken from GPL version 3. As used here, the
+term 'this License' refers to the specific Covered License being
+enforced.
+
+ However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
+ license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
+ provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly
+ and finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the
+ copyright holder fails to notify you of the violation by some
+ reasonable means prior to 60 days after the cessation.
+
+ Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
+ reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
+ violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you
+ have received notice of violation of this License (for any work)
+ from that copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30
+ days after your receipt of the notice.
+
+We intend this Commitment to be irrevocable, and binding and
+enforceable against us and assignees of or successors to our
+copyrights.
