Finding a substitue Jack might be harder (though given Bob Ippolito's work rate at the moment we could probably make him MacPython maintainer without him noticing <wink>).
Not that I'm planning to get run over by a tram shortly, but just in case: I think Just or Ronald or yourself or any various other python-devvers would make a better substitute *at this point in time*. Bob does some truly wonderful things at terrific speed, but that has some drawbacks for maintainability, IMHO. Being MacPython maintainer is 10% doing fun stuff and 90% taking care of all the nitty-gritty details, making everything work in as many situations as possible, documenting, etc etc etc. -- Jack Jansen, Jack.Jansen@cwi.nl, http://www.cwi.nl/%7Ejack If I can't dance I don't want to be part of your revolution -- Emma Goldman
