While the original intent was to have a conference about Python (..and
then also Zope), i.e. Zope comes second, there weren't any sudden
changes in emphasis at all.

If this is a political issue I for one am quite willing to drop 
the 'and Zope' from the title, however.

Right, and I'm in Rotterdam or in Utrecht, depending on when you're looking.
Though www.europython.org runs in Amsterdam. :)

[snip comments from Marc-Andre that are sensible; stay away from mentioning
Java, let's not get lost in the free/open source debate, etc]

I don't know who has the final version of the press release now.. Can we
pick one or two people who manage this whole press release story? I'd be
glad to let others do this. :)
