+1 as well. i think there's enough Python community in the WashDC,
NoVa, SoMD area to support such an effort.
be sure to reach out to all other regional user groups in the area to
participate as well as universities/colleges that use Python. there
are even several high schools in the area that include Python in their
curriculum (Yorktown HS in Arlington, TJHSST in Alexandria
[AI/robotics course]). also, jeff elkner --
http://us.pycon.org/2011/speaker/profile/240/ -- works for the
Arlington Public Schools.
to add to this, you may also wish to reach out to the regional Django
groups as well as Django and its ecosystem can make for an entire
track in addition to one for Zope/Plone!
