New submission from Zooko O'Whielacronx <zooko at zooko.com>:

I am trying to get Tahoe-LAFS listed on the FSF/UNESCO directory of Free Software: http://directory.fsf.org/ . One of the sticking points is that Tahoe-LAFS includes a copy of setuptools (http://allmydata.org/trac/tahoe-lafs/browser/misc/dependencies/setuptools-0.6c12dev.egg?rev=20090205152818-92b7f-68bbee545bd9198bb3c4eb7cf9b84bf7d93e09d6 ) and, as the FSF representative wrote:

Next, the following code misc/dependencies/setuptools/EGG-INFO/PKG-INFO
calls for either the Zope Public License or the Python Software
Foundation License neither of which is present. One of them needs to be
added in order to fix the problem.  Both can be found through links on
our website.

To fix this, include a copy of the licence text with the distribution. (Or close this ticket as wontfix and I'll work-around it.)
