Apparently some packages were making assumptions about the format of the

(It would be helpful if there were a little permissively licensed standalone implementation of PEP 440 comparisons, suitable for the "if pkg.version > ...:" checks that people insist on doing -- I couldn't find one in some quick searches.)
It’s what both pip and setuptools use (though we embed it, but it’s fine
to depend on it too).
That's under Apache 2, so it can't be used by GPLv2 packages, or any package that might be used by GPLv2 packages.
I suspect it’d be trivial to relicense it. There’s a total of 6 contributors and I think
I know how to get ahold of all of them.
Presumably to MIT + ApacheV2 ?
2 Clause BSD and Apache v2.0.
