So this is the proposal:
The TEI Guidelines, including schemas or documentation generated from
them, associated processing tools and stylesheets, exemplars, and test
files, should be released under a 2-clause BSD license.
(The 2-clause license is the "Simplified BSD License" or "FreeBSD License".)
I vote in favour.
