I agree with you, that community should not be involved to this level and in some critical decisions, but on second thought, I think should we not point out to Clem and dev team, who is working hard to give us an OS for FREE.
This is just a pointer. Rest depends upon them.
OK. No issues
I looked into the Ubuntu disclaimer because Mint is based on Ubuntu and found corporate jargon and several appendix with regards to corporate issues.
As far as a disclaimer goes this would be left to Clem and his legal counsel. I do not believe this is something a Community member has any right to say.
It is NOT for us to be involved in.

I will read them in free time, with an effort to understand it :)
Launchpad while suggesting correction in language, says bsd type license. I will search bsd license too.
There speaks someone who has read too many proprietary software licences. They seem to spend an inordinate effort on making them complex and hard to understand. The GPL on the other hand has spent a similar effort on making it easy to understand.
Obviously, it's a licence so it has some legalese but on the whole they've done a good job.
hmm ok. I never had a look at GPL license. As an End user, I do not read that is hidden with small text :). Maybe companies look into it.
Do you need everything that is written in terms and conditions while signing gmail account or while installing any software?
So important point is to highlight, while most commercial companies tend to hide disclaimer and terms and conditions it with small size 7 or 8 font in print :D
Anyways, thanks for the info.
This is covered in the GPL and I assume other licences. Particularly the free(dom) ones. It wouldn't be a bad idea to also display such a disclaimer on the downloads page.
