[smc-discuss] Why TDIL appears to be nonfree?

TDIL [1] seems to be active (though not revolutionary), and some of
their stuff appears to be promising (like TTS and machine translation).
But their licensing terms are unclear, sources are not always available
and if what this page [2] says is true, its policies are total injustice
to the citizen as well as the future of technology.

Is there any movement to put pressure on the government to make it open?
I think the governments (both central and state) love "open source"
nowadays (OpenData, OpenForge, IT policies endorsing FLOSS, ...).
