Python Software Foundation License Version 2 Revised

This is the current draft revision 0.1 of the Revised Python Software Foundation License Version 2, after incorporating feedback from some lawyers. It may be used as the basis for Version 3 in the future (PythonSoftwareFoundationLicenseV2Easy is the official Version 2 PSF License):

PYTHON SOFTWARE FOUNDATION LICENSE VERSION 2

0. This Python Software Foundation License (the "License") applies to
any original work of authorship (the "Software") whose owner (the
"Licensor") has placed the following notice immediately following the

promote products or services of Licensee, or any third party.

8. By accessing, copying, installing or otherwise using the Software,
Licensee agrees to be bound by the terms and conditions of this License
Agreement.

Notable changes from v 2.0:

+ Added clause 0

+ Made it more generic, hopefully to avoid the "we can't take submissions with our own license" problem.

+ Made explicit that some limits/etc applied to third parties.
