For those who don't know, Trove classifiers are used by the Python world to talk about what is contained in the Python package. Stuff like saying "It's under the MIT/Expat license!" or "It's beta!".
I was looking at the tags, and I saw one that made me "wat" a bit.
License :: OSI Approved :: GNU Free Documentation License (FDL)
AFAIK the GFDL is *not* OSI approved, both due to it not being a software license, as well as I'm sure the invariant clauses being an issue.
Has anyone come across this yet? Anyone have objections to me trying to clean up the Trove list?
Good catch! Cleaning the list is going to be easy on the Python.org side, especially since a new Pypi site is in the making.  The harder or impossible part would have be to clean up the 1000+ of packages using this faulty classifier.... But there is really only three of these  and all of them look either pretty old or abandoned and none has its packages effectively hosted or distributed on Pypi.
