Call for proposals -- PyCon 2009 -- <http://us.pycon.org/2009/>
Want to share your experience and expertise? PyCon 2009 is looking for
proposals to fill the formal presentation tracks. The PyCon conference
days will be March 27-29, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois, preceded by the
tutorial days (March 25-26), and followed by four days of development
sprints (March 30-April 2).
Previous PyCon conferences have had a broad range of presentations,
from reports on academic and commercial projects to tutorials and case
studies. We hope to continue that tradition this year.
Online proposal submission will open on September 29, 2008. Proposals
will be accepted through November 03, with acceptance notifications
coming out on December 15. For the detailed call for proposals,
We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!

I'm out of town this week for a conference (ICFP/CUFP in Victoria) and
my hotel's connection has been bad enough such that I can't get any
Real Work done so I've managed to hammer on the json library's
decoding quite a bit instead. I just released simplejson 1.9.3 which
improves decoding performance by about 2x and I've got some more
changes along the way in trunk for 1.9.4 that will increase it even
further (over 3x my original 1.9.2 benchmark perf). How much time do I
have left to get this into Python 2.6?
FWIW the changes are all on the Python side, no C code has been harmed
(yet). The test suite still passes of course.
As I remember, last month 2to3 was able to fix my reST documentation
using "-d" option. But trunk version fails to parse my reST documents. Should
I run fsck on my brain or is it really a regression?
Some text before the example:
>>> print "Hello world!"
Verbatim block: ::
>>> print "Hello world!"
The document can be checked with:
python2.5 -c "import doctest; doctest.testfile('test.rst')"
$ 2to3 -d test.rst
RefactoringTool: Can't parse test.rst: ParseError: bad input: type=28,
value='==', context=('', (2, 0))

I updated httplib.py, python 2.4, to be able to bind to a specific IP
address when connecting to a remote site. Would there be any interest in
making this available to others? If so, are there instructions on how to
post an update?
Benjamin Peterson wound up writing a test case for the new C atexit module
on the py3k branch. A similar test, though different in detail, makes sense
for the Python atexit module on trunk. Is this something I can check in or
should I just wait until after 2.6 is released?
s = StringIO.StringIO()
sys.stdout = sys.stderr = s
save_handlers = atexit._exithandlers
atexit._exithandlers = 
atexit.register(lambda: 1, 0, 0, (x for x in (1,2)), 0, 0)
sys.stdout = sys.__stdout__
sys.stderr = sys.__stderr__
atexit._exithandlers = save_handlers
I was enjoying reading Raymond Hettinger's Objects/dictnotes.txt, and
was wondering, which (if any) of its suggestions implemented? I see
most of it was written back in 2003.
Can someone comment on this ticket?
It's marked as a release blocker for 3.0. I added a patch then refined it
based on a comment by Christian Heimes. It was unassigned. I just took it
and will apply the patch if it gets a thumbs up from another developer.

Sorry to bother you, but I would like a patch review, since this code
must be merged for 2.6.
Thanks in advance.
