You may wish to write down "in incubation" for GeoServer; and "n/a" for uDig. I am not sure if the providence review is appropriate here as it is a document written for a specific target audience (the incubation committee) and is not kept up to-date after graduation.

Preference is to point to Projects page describing the licence, but can point to Open Software Initiative definition of Licences instead. If a project is released under 2 or more licences, then create a new table row for each licence.	Add any clarifications, or exceptions to licence here	Link to OSGeo Providence Review if exists. (This is one of the artifacts of OSGeo Incubation)
