Bob Weiner (BeOpen's CTO, my boss) told me that he's very close to
reaching a compromise with CNRI about the new Python license.  There's
only one remaining issue before Richard Stallman is willing to declare
the license GPL-compatible.  We expect that this wrinkle will be
worked out with CNRI's president Bob Kahn on Monday.

Tim Peters knows more, you just have to ask the right way. :-)

Gotta run,
