status of license for pyMPI


The pyMPI (http://sourceforge.net/projects/pympi/) license says the
following. I think this is non-free under the DFSG, but I would like a
confirmation. I think that the non-commercial clause by itself
violates point 6, "No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor",
right? But the wording seems a little ambiguous. It does not actually
*restrict* use, just requires notification, so I'm not sure.

Please CC me, I'm not subscribed. Thanks.
