And also trunk/subversion/bindings/swig/python/LICENSE_FOR_PYTHON_BINDINGS
which is otherwise the same, but uses the Apache license (and ASF).

AFAIK, the tests that are not in t/s/b/s/p/tests/trac do not come from
Trac, but depend in a slight way on the Trac tests.
BTW, the license notice at the top of t/s/b/s/p/tests/trac/test.py is
rather murky; it starts with the ordinary ASF notice and then refers you
Also note that I want to eventually remove the trac directory and
integrate non-duplicate tests from there into the "main" testsuite -
albeit I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do that. Maybe we can persuade
Edgewall to formally contribute those parts to ASF so we can manupulate
