True enough, although there's a wiki sandbox where just about anything
goes, including the diversity list airing some dirty laundry.


(the PSF archive will reveal no consultation process occurred before
this page went to the public -- I did publicly distance myself from it
on comp.lang.python as I work with a diverse group and don't want to
be associated with such amateurish nonsense).

Yes exactly.  Python.org is a lean and mean operation in the sense of
not needing to bloat.  That farsi site linked from Carl's wiki page
(in python.org) is more likely prototypical.  No one needs PSF
permission to write books or tutorials about Python (or to make
cartoons, more my focus, like on Sesame Street but more for grownups).

Thanks for adding Litvins by the way.  Party time at lobbying HQS in
Silicon Forest (shot an email to Chris Brooks within minutes).  Not
that everything bottlenecks in Python.org, just we like to see our
world reflected, if only just a little.
