All  those sound like good candidates for the upcoming Tools night (March
26th). I haven't had much of a response from presenters - so far only JJ,
Sandrine Ribeau (I haven't met her but she posted recently about the
semantic web framework from logilab), and I are presenting. I am currently
planning to do a longish talk about my workflow using pip, virtualenv, and
fabric to make and deploy my python environments. That would also take care
of a couple of your desired newbie nugget topics jj - fabric approximately
equals capistrano. I could do a newbie nugget on supervisord sometime (I'm
using it to manage Django instances and a few other "daemons" written in
python) - but I think Drew Pertulla was who turned me on to it in the first

I'd also be happy to only cover one of my topics if we had a few other
speakers. Sandrine is going to present pylint and jj volunteered several
topics; I've been holding off selecting a set topic for him hoping to hear
from a few of the rest of you. So - If you'd like to talk about zc.buildout
or Cython or any other python tool you use in your deployment tasks - now
would be a good time to volunteer...

-best regards
