Dear fellow Pythonistas,
as you may have heard, Python is going to get a new documentation system soon . As part of that effort, and in order to maintain the excellent quality of the docs, we are looking for members of the maintainers team. This is your chance to get involved with Python development!
There will be two main objectives of the group, or maybe two subgroups can be formed:
Maintaining the documentation contents:
keeping the docs up-to-date, e.g. write new sections for new Python 3000 features
The docs source will be in reStructuredText, which is already known to a relatively high percentage of Python developers.
The new online version of the docs will contain features to add comments and suggest changes, so it is expected that there will be some amount of user involvement.
Development of the toolset:
adapting it to new docutils features
The software is written in pure Python. It is currently located in the docutils Subversion repository, at http://svn.berlios.de/viewcvs/docutils/trunk/sandbox/py-rest-doc/
The README file gives you a rough idea what you find there and how to get started, all other questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org, I'll answer them gladly.
An additional objective in the near future will, of course, be handling the switch to the new system.
Okay, so you've read until here? And you're interested in joining the team? Wow! Write to the email@example.com and become a documentation maintainer!
 see http://pyside.blogspot.com/2007/06/introducing-py-rest-doc.html for some details, and http://pydoc.gbrandl.de:3000/  for a demo. (Commenting doesn't work yet, but it's worked upon fiercely...)
 the demo server is a small vserver with the application served by a single wsgiref instance, and as such not fit to handle large amounts of requests, so it may well be that you don't get good reponse times.
