it looks like the OP is looking for the license to setuptools, not
(MPL's licence file is here:
but setuptools does not appear to have one:
and it is a pypa package, so this is kind the right list for it -- though
I"d post an issue on gitHub.
BTW, I notice that the Python Packaging User Guide doesn't recommend a
LICENSE file -- it probably should.
NOTE to the OP: almost every python package depends on setuptools, so this
really has nothing to do with Matplotlib :-)
