And to save some of you a click, the updated link:

While I'm here, the first page I linked mentions the webmaster list. That is another area where volunteers (who can start by just joining the list and reading some of the archives) would be more than welcome. As far as I can tell there's just a couple of crusty old white guys (of which I am one) holding the fort and happy to pass on the reigns, such as they are.

I believe I am currently the only active list administrator, so just mail me at if you are interested in joining that list. It's not high-volume, but it's a part of the Python community's public face, and so needs better representation from our rich community. Once you've assessed the traffic and a bit of list history you can start pitching in whenever you feel comnfortable.

Kind regards,

The Python community needs your help. Learning how to edit events is relatively easy, though alas I have no link. I am pretty sure there is an immediate need for volunteers, so anyone who actually wants to give to the community as well as consume it should feel free to raise a hand!

If you would like to try the site's development system, there is a moderate degree of documentation about how the site works and is maintained. Any community member with access to the necessary computing resources can build the site, though I confess it is so long since I dabbled in the code myself I have little current knowledge.

I CAN say fairly confidently that working on the site and improving the documentation would be a good project to get involved with to provide evidence of a certain competence and learn some software engineering skills. Also, because the code is open source it's suitable for use in educational and community projects. People who learn it have a real chance of changing the face of

The code for the site is a great resource, and running it locally requires competence that teams and individuals can learn.

Kind regards,

Agree, it sure increases our UG's search engine visibility!
