License Notes

This was the license for the initial Python 2.0 release in 2000. It is Free, but GPL-incompatible, because of its "choice of law" provision. The Python 2.0.1 release relicensed all code under the BeOpen license to the Python License, so this license should generally be considered to be deprecated.
