A mailing list for the Catalog SIG has been created, to discuss the
design and construction of a Vaults/CPAN/LSM-like index for Python.
Web pages for the SIG don't exist yet, but will be created soon.

The SIG's charter:

The Python Catalog SIG aims at producing a master index of Python
software and other resources.  It will begin by figuring out what the
requirements are, converging on a design for the data schema, and
producing an implementation.  ("Implementation" will almost certainly
include mean a set of CGI scripts for browsing the catalog, and may
also contain a standard library module for automatically fetching &
installing modules, if the SIG decides that's a worthwhile feature.)
