In Option 1 of the Waiver I have commented out the 1st sentence of paragraph 3.

I agree with you assessment of confusion but just grabbed the wording
from the CC website.  I hope the clarification as noted below will
help clear up any confusion by anyone who may not be familiar with the
license CC license.  Please advise, thanks!

I clarified you  - you and we are as it pertains to the license by
adding you (The Ubuntu Women and Ubuntu Projects) where you equals The
Ubuntu Women and Ubuntu Projects.

Yep the intent is to not modify or use for commercial purposes, unless
a waiver or less restrictive license as listed in the announcement is
granted or preferred by parent/guardian of child/model.

Thanks again Matthew and please let us know if this still needs tweaking.

only want to use it. That is a tribute to how good Linux is.
