Although note you are still free to distribute it under whatever license 
you want as an external project (you retain copyright). If you have 
already signed a contributor agreement then there is no need for further 
discussion of how your contributions are licensed for inclusion in 
Python, that is already dealt with.

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
