Dear BOAI 2002 vanguards,

Someone please teach me about the original meanings or implications of 
"green" and "gold" at the time of the first BOAI 
recommendation. Why was self-archving named as "green" and OA 
journals as "gold"?

green: green light? "RoMEO-green"?
gold: highest grade? (like "Gold Medal")


Best wishes,
