I'm writing a compiler that will eventually be a build dependency of
glibc and so (hopefully!) end up in Fedora. I want to use two Python
libraries as dependencies, but I'd like clarification that both have
ok licenses for Fedora before I dive in.
This one has no LICENSE file; the top of the source file says this:

Could you confirm that this is 2 clause BSD ("License: BSD") and that
I just need to get the maintainers to add a LICENSE file for this to
be ok for Fedora?
