The Python Software Foundation (PSF; http://www.python.org/psf/) was created to (eventually) hold the intellectual property (IP) for the Python programming language.
In order to be able to succeed in this, contributions to the Python programming language will have to be covered by legally valid contribution agreements. To make this process as simple as possible, the PSF members have come up with three different contribution agreements.
The current versions of those agreements have been posted to a new mailing list at:
If you want to participate in the final discussion of these documents, please sign up to the list.
As you are probably aware of, there currently is a review going on about the new way the PSF plans to manage IP contributions to the Python programming language.
This is a reminder of the upcoming deadline for the review which is planned for this Friday, March 15th. If there should be significant discussions before that date, we'll extend the review period up to the previously announced termination of the mailing list on April 15th.
So far the mailing list has been very very quiet, which we interpret as consent with the proposed procedures and documents.
The current versions of those agreements are available online on the PSF web-site:
