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?
They need to sign a contributor agreement and add the corrsponding note to the source code file(s). That's all that's needed.
I believe license questions can also be directed to the new legal-sig list http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-legal-sig
