Please do read the previou discussion regarding SSPL and mongodb. I don't know
if there are recent development but it's still not an OSI license.

I do think there is a possible debate still about how we should approach these
licenses, but in general people favour dropping them instead of pretending to be
a lawyer. This is also why elasticsearch has been updated until the version
before the license change and then orphaned.
