QOTW: "Let us cease to nourish those fabled ones who dwell under bridges." - Tom Zych http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/msg/c1052... Look for "Python Insider" below. Then read through everything there. You'll want to know about this one. Once again, the PSF sponsors GSoC projects (and, as has become traditional, "Python-URL!" is again a week late in publicizing the fact): http://pyfound.blogspot.com/2011/03/google-summer-of-code... Projects range from Mailman to Web frameworks to Wikis ... Get your applications in THIS WEEK. An important recurring topic (particularly challenging with Win*, apparently): communication with subprocess-es: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_th... http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python/browse_th... A podcast on the Cython project. Note this is *far* from the first C-Python alloy: http://inscight.org/2011/03/31/episode_/ Another well-packaged non-first: interactive Python interpretation through the Web: http://zodb.ws/ You'll like PyMOTW below.

The Python Software Foundation (PSF) has replaced the Python Consortium as an independent nexus of activity.
