I'm not sure what you're arguing for. Are you saying the PSF shouldn't bother making sure the copyright to python is unencumbered?
Eric, let me quote myself again:
Ok, so, since the PSF appears to have a meeting very soon, can I request that the PSF gets its act together and solves the "electronic contributor agreement" issue once and for all? The way we core developers are prevented from working properly is **totally** unacceptable. Thank you
I don't care and don't want to argue (I insist about this) about religions, be it christianism or intellectual property. If you think a legal rule is needed, please just *ensure it doesn't get in the way*. That's your job as a self-proclaimed "protector of IP rights", not mine.
And if you can't pull it off, then admit you failed in your duty and stop bothering us core developers.
