Which is sort of exactly the point of Python-URL! ...
Why not tempt Fredrik, the current editor, to keep the Python-URL! list
of pointers short, say within 10 items, then redo the second section to
exactly what you have in mind, and change the title from:
Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and links (Mar 13)
Dr. Dobb's Python-URL! - weekly Python news and FAQ (Mar 13)
Wouldn't that serve everyone?
I fear that weekly this and weekly that is not going to help those who
briefly visit the newsgroup in search of more info... and it seems that
it would be easier to sustain a weekly activity if people join forces.
Wait, let me rephrase this: Python-URL! is intended to serve a purpose.
If there are better ways to do so, please consider stepping forward and
making changes to it. No one is "in control" of it, Cameron Laird and I
merely participate to try to maintain a form of long-term continuity.
The second section of Python-URL! sure could benefit from an overhaul,
if you ask me...
