FSF Statement

Eben Moglen, on behalf of the FSF, writes:

The Free Software Foundation thanks the board of the Python Foundation and Guido van Rossum for their cooperation in developing a license for Python 2.0.1 that is fully compatible with the GNU General Public License (GPL). Python 2.0.1c1 and all future versions released under the same license are free software that may be freely combined with programs released under GPL. FSF recognizes the enormous value of Python for developers of free software; we are pleased that all prior difficulties with the fullest use of Python in free software projects have now been resolved.
