The full-build target fails when copying the LICENSE file from the CPython repository to dist/LICENSE_CPython.txt.  Line 744 of build.xml has the license path set to ${checkout.dir}/python/LICENSE; however, this repository is never cloned.  The attached patch adds the hg call to clone the CPython repository into the correct location in the checkout target.


     [echo] copy CPython LICENSE from .../jython/../full_build/work/checkout/python

.../jython/build.xml:744: Warning: Could not find file .../jython/../full_build/work/checkout/python/LICENSE to copy.

Expected Result: The installer would be built.

Cause: .../jython/full_build/work/checkout/python does not exist.

I suppose, but I really don't see the necessity of this. Jython and CPython are both under the PSF, and LICENSE.txt clearly indicates the licensing. So this is cleanup at most.

We probably should make the inclusion of the core (CPython) standard library explicit in ACKNOWLEDGMENTS, much as we do with other libraries.

Frank, so presumably adding one text file is a safe change ;), so can you apply Keith's patch for final? I will write a change in ACKNOWLEDGMENTS re CPython. Otherwise we should assume for the moment that nothing else is changing in the final release.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS changed in "Sibling relationship with CPython includes use and derivation"
