It is said in the email that this is reserved to the python project, and prominent python projects like Twisted and Django. Would it be ok to try to be qualified as a prominent python project as well ?
Give it some time. Nobody - not even the Python core devs - have access to the machines. It's going to take at least several weeks to get the infrastructure running and to establish a policy.
From my perspective NumPy and Sage both count as prominent Python
projects. Heck, you are in competition with tools like Matlab and you ain't looking bad! Furthermore you could make better use of the machines than Django because you are using way more C extensions and esoteric libraries.
I recommend you subscribe to the snakebite list and bring up your interest. You got my +1 already. For now the list is firstname.lastname@example.org but it will move to another server (probably Python.org) eventually.
