The following W3C license is used with the W3C web browser Amaya.
http://w3c.org/Consortium/Legal/2002/copyright-software-20021231

For comparison in the VoiceXML space, the open source VXML browser
OpenVXI is licensed under the ScanSoft Public License, which is a very
non-restrictive license.
http://fife.speech.cs.cmu.edu/openvxi/sspl.html

The ScanSoft Public License is very similar in content to the BSD
License
http://opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php

OpenSource.org has an extensive listing of licenses suitable for use
with open source projects. http://opensource.org/licenses/

As for which license you choose, it depends on what you are trying to
accomplish. For example, do you want to allow commercial uses, do you
require attribution, do you want to require that any derivative works be
licensed under the same license you choose, do you want to make a
statement against software patents, etc. Based on your email, I
recommend evaluating the following licenses in this priority order: BSD,
W3C, Apache, CPL, GPL.

For a project repository, I highly recommend SourceForge. I've used
SourceForge for a couple years to maintain open source VoiceXML
applications I've written.
http://sourceforge.net/index.php

I'm very happy to hear about your project. I look forward to trying it
out.
