The Guardian are a lot more cool with it. To get an API key on their
open platform, you need to jump through some hoops and get approval. But
in principal they're not against having their content redistributed.

https://open-platform.theguardian.com/

Unfortunately, its not possible to follow their requirements to the
letter using Gemtext. For example, you're not allowed to mess with the
HTML, and you need to show a "Powered by The Guardian" image.

I'm not using the API for gemini://guardian.shit.cx, but I eventually
intend to eventually conform more closely to the conditions of open
platform.

By the way, I really like Simple News. Great work.
