Guido, how do you envision python-dev working?
I though we'd just crack Monty Python jokes while pretending to work :-)
That'd be better than what I've read on the perl5-porters list in the last couple of days (which I'm reading because of the ad hoopla). They seem to spend their time arguing about whether Perl codes are programs or scripts. Viciously, too. =) More seriously, some of the discussions they're having a worth keeping an eye on, just as a form of legal industrial spying.
There was an interesting bit from Greg, Jack, and MarkH on this topic recently in the distutil-sig. Maybe one of them can bring the rest of us up to date on the effort. --david
