 [ The code is copyrighted and *apparently* freely usable and
   distributable, but most definitely makes no provision
   for distribution of derivative works. ]

Or anything else that is

 a) Common Lisp related
 b) Freely distributable, but not necessarily open source, or
    has eg. a license that prohibits commercial use (eg. Picasso)
 c) Not necessarily hosted on common-lisp.net.

Time will tell if this is a significant group or not, of course. But
the point is that it would be nice to have a anon FTP without any
license requirements beyond free redistribution. This means also
smaller workload for maintaining the FTP, since there is not need to
wonder if license Foo fullfills the policy.

Alternatively we could have pub/free for anything DSFG-free and
pub/non-free for non-DSFG-free, but still freely distributable.
