Red shift

Red shift* is a phenomenon than makes things change their colour. It is usually applied to stars.

There are groups of people shifting the red from the OSMI licence change view by remapping the work of people who have declined the new licence or whom we cannot contact any more.
These shifters of red are stars, everyone of them and I thank them, along with the folks who built the tools to show what needs to be shifted. Bravo.

* red shift is caused as space that makes up the fabric of the universe is stretched because the universe is expanding. This stretches the light coming from distant stars changing its wavelength towards the red end of the spectrum, hence 'red shift'.
