It's hard to take care of both newbies and developers at the same
time.  I'd like to see briefer, 1- or maybe 2-day meetings that are
essentially like Developer's Day; it looks like everyone thinks
"Python Workshop" is a good name for such an event.

Moshe told me he had a lot of fun at a Debian conference somewhere in
France that was essentially a big hacking party; something like that
for Python would be great.  Imagine getting a gaggle of people
together, saying "let's implement the damn catalog, already" and
actually *doing* it.
