[Fedora-legal-list] Python licensing for backported code

Hi all,

This refers to the following review request:
The code in question is here:

This package's entire purpose is to have a method from Python 3.2
available in earlier versions of Python. The code is copied from Python
3.2 into its own module.

As far as I know, that means the code is under the Python license.

On the PyPi page:
the license is listed as MIT.

Is the person who put the license tag on PyPi just wrong, or is there
something more elaborate I have to look into here?
