While reviewing an incubation request for a new project, Barbican , I
see that it would be adding a new dependency, Celery. As noted below,
Celery uses the 3-clause BSD license.

1) Do we already have dependencies that use this license? Do we have a
master list somewhere?
2) How does the documentation clause apply for a Python project?
3) If we don't already have dependencies using this license, what do
others thing about accepting it (or not) for OpenStack?
