At https://docs.python.org/3/license.html , the licence agreement for Python 3.8.2rc2 appears, however, I can't see the agreement for 3.8.1. It appears to be missing.

Likewise, other licences for various version numbers appear to be missing.

Also, it would be really helpful if you said one or more of the following:

 - that the licence only concerns:
     + copying, distribution, etc.
     + granting you extra copyright freedoms to those you already have under applicable law.
 - that there are no restrictions imposed on you by the licence, for the simple ordinary use of the software (that is other than copying, etc.) for x, y, z purposes.
 - that if you comply with the GPLv3 licence with respect to the software, you also meet the compliance requirements under the Python licence, and so you can treat the software as though it is GPLv3 software however, if you so treat the software, the software is still nonetheless licensed to you under the Python licence and NOT the GPL licence.

The 3.8.1 license can be found at https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/v3.8.1/LICENSE. But the reason you are seeing the license as under 3.8.2rc2 is because that's the version the 3.8 docs is showing, not 3.8.1. So there's no license missing, you're just not looking at the 3.8.1 docs as we are not displaying those at docs.python.org anymore.
