New issue 2123: about license links


I noticed some project licenses included into this project seem just linked instead of providing original licenses. E.g. license of Python itself seems to be only provided by link in LICENSE file: http://www.python.org/doc/Copyright.html, and also this link is not valid now (Error 404).

I'm not lawyer and don't know if this is fine or not, but I'd think it's better to provide original file of license into project folder if the license itself require to do that, instead of just linking it.

Also I noticed the license of Python seems to have some words that may be appended or changed between versions. E.g. copyright years. This may also need to take into concern every time you update the library files from Python project, for example.

Also in LICENSE file, it says "Python Software License", but is this the correct name(s) of license(s) of Python? (You may see here for reference: https://docs.python.org/2/license.html)

Also, other license links may have same problem, I did not review all of them.
