The Python Software Foundation trademark policy says the following:
"# Use of the word "Python" when redistributing the Python programming
language as part of a freely distributed application -- Allowed. If the
standard version of the Python programming language is modified, this
should be clearly indicated. For commercial distributions, contact the
PSF for permission."
As I understand it, Debian uses the name Python to refer to its Python
implementation and the name "python" for the executable. Does this mean
that all commercial distributors of Debian need to get permission from
the PSF, or alter their copy of the python package?
