In http://bugs.python.org/issue17618, I proposed adding a base85 implementation to Python. Mercurial already has one (under the GPL), so I wrote to the authors (Brendan Cully and Mads Kiilerich) and got their informal approval for relicensing and inclusion in Python.
My question is the following: does anything formal need to be done to validate the relicensing? If yes, what?
That's a good question. In optimism for a positive pronouncement, I'm preparing a 4.0 version of flufl.enum, which is currently LGPLv3+. I intend to do the next release under an ASLv2.0 license in order to be compatible with the contributor agreement. It's too much of a PITA for me to do dual licenses and since ASLv2.0 is GPL-compatible, that seems fine enough for me.
Is that enough for contribution to Python?
