29 Explanation:
30
31 Angle brackets hold "fields", e.g. <copyright holder>.
32
33 Square brackets hold optional text, e.g. [or <related entities>].
34
35 A license can have variations in capitalization and whitespace, and
36 still be considered an instance of this template.
37
38 It may be possible to construct a grammatically incorrect license from
39 this template, or one that lacks a disclaimer, or one that includes a
40 double-disclaimer. That is acceptable, as long as it remains impossible
41 to construct a non-OSD-compliant license that matches the pattern.
