That only solves the problem for Python.org. It does not solve the problem for everyone else that has to write "This product includes software developed by the OpenSSL Project for use in the OpenSSL Toolkit. (http://www.openssl.org/) This product includes cryptographic software written by Eric Young (eay at cryptsoft.com)" in advertisement that mentions features.

> Unless "base64" is an OpenSSL trademark, this is FUD.

The license clearly states: "All advertising materials mentioning features or use of this software". Do you somehow disagree that base64 is a feature of the OpenSSL library?
