+This directory contains common Python code.
+
+The basic rule is that if Python code is cross-module (that's "module" in the
+Mozilla meaning - as in "module ownership") and is MPL-compatible, it should
+go here.
+
+What should not go here:
+
+* Python that is not MPL-compatible (see other-licenses/)
+* Python that has good reason to remain close to its "owning" (Mozilla)
+  module (e.g. it is only being consumed from there).
