All right. This just gets me.

Why must we assert copyrights on these things? Come on, people. Aren't we
seeing Python 2.0 release problems because of copyrights?

It isn't like this stuff is Intellectual Property or anything. It's just a
summary of where the discussion is! It's a communication mechanism to bring
people up to speed on the issues, concerns, and approaches.

But something that needs to be copyrighted? Geez. That's just a bit much.
