That sounds very convenient, thanks.
Ok, welcome to the project! Please let me know whether it "works".
It looks that it works, I seem to be able to add a new attachment to the spwd patch- which I will do shortly.
Now that I'm part of the developers group I feel obliged to tell a little bit about myself.
I'm a guy from the Netherlands, 30 years old, currently employed at a company designing and developing front- and mid-office web based applications (mostly). We do this in Java (j2ee). I'm using Python where the job allows it, which is much too little IMO :) and for my private stuff, or hobby if you wish.
I've been introduced to Python in 1995-6, I think, wanted it at home too, ported it to AmigaDOS (voila AmigaPython), and got more and more involved ever since (starting mostly as a lurker in comp.lang.python). My interests are broad but there's two areas that I particularly like: internet/networking and web/browsers.
Over the course of the past few years I developed Pyro, which many of you will probably know (still doing small improvements on that) and more recently, Snakelets and Frog (my own web server and blog app).
My C/C++ skills are getting a bit rusty now because I do almost all of my programming in Java or Python, but it's still good enough to be able to contribute to (C)Python, I think. My interest in contributing to Python itself was sparked by the last bug day organized by Johannes Gijsbers. I hope to be able to find time to contribute more often.
Well, that about sums it up I think !
Does the status of 'python project member' come with certain expectations that must be complied with ? ;-)
There are a few conventions that are followed more or less stringently. You should be aware of the things in the developer FAQ,
Initially, "new" developers should follow a "write-after-approval" procedure, i.e. they should not commit anything until they got somebody's approval. Later, we commit things which we feel confident about, and post other things to SF.
I don't think I will be committing stuff any time soon. But thanks for mentioning.
