SM,

I wanted to follow-up with this specific request and advise that based on discussions with legal council and feedback from the Trustees that the current rules don't allow granting permission to republish this using the Independent Submission Stream, nor to grant a Community Commons license.  At this time we also do not have community consensus to prioritize a change to the rules in order to meet this request.

Thank you
