                        A. HISTORY OF THE SOFTWARE
                        ==========================
    
                        Python was created in the early 1990s by Guido van Rossum at Stichting
                        Mathematisch Centrum (CWI, see http://www.cwi.nl) in the Netherlands
                        as a successor of a language called ABC.  Guido remains Python's
                        principal author, although it includes many contributions from others.
    
                        In 1995, Guido continued his work on Python at the Corporation for
                        National Research Initiatives (CNRI, see http://www.cnri.reston.va.us)
                        in Reston, Virginia where he released several versions of the
                        software.
    
                        In May 2000, Guido and the Python core development team moved to
                        BeOpen.com to form the BeOpen PythonLabs team.  In October of the same
                        year, the PythonLabs team moved to Digital Creations (now Zope
                        Corporation, see http://www.zope.com).  In 2001, the Python Software
                        Foundation (PSF, see http://www.python.org/psf/) was formed, a
                        non-profit organization created specifically to own Python-related
                        Intellectual Property.  Zope Corporation is a sponsoring member of
                        the PSF.
    
                        All Python releases are Open Source (see http://www.opensource.org for
                        the Open Source Definition).  Historically, most, but not all, Python
                        releases have also been GPL-compatible; the table below summarizes
                        the various releases.

                        (1) GPL-compatible doesn't mean that we're distributing Python under
                            the GPL.  All Python licenses, unlike the GPL, let you distribute
                            a modified version without making your changes open source.  The
                            GPL-compatible licenses make it possible to combine Python with
                            other software that is released under the GPL; the others don't.
    
                        (2) According to Richard Stallman, 1.6.1 is not GPL-compatible,
                            because its license has a choice of law clause.  According to
                            CNRI, however, Stallman's lawyer has told CNRI's lawyer that 1.6.1
                            is "not incompatible" with the GPL.
    
                        Thanks to the many outside volunteers who have worked under Guido's
                        direction to make these releases possible.

                        OR ANY DERIVATIVE THEREOF, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF.
    
                        6. This License Agreement will automatically terminate upon a material
                        breach of its terms and conditions.

                        Agreement, Licensee may substitute the following text (omitting the
                        quotes): "Python 1.6.1 is made available subject to the terms and
                        conditions in CNRI's License Agreement.  This Agreement together with

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
