Hi there,

(from long silence, I'll try to keep up with this list now -- I would like
to invest some time in this conference but in a more balanced way than my
unbalanced act last year :)

I'd prefer not to be track chairman this year, so I can track-hop a bit
more -- I ran both the Python Language and the Python Apps track last
year and that was a bit too much.

That said I wouldn't mind assisting
on the Python language track to look for some people; I think last year
we had very interesting talks on the track and I think we can beat it
this year, with all the activity centered in Europe concerning the
language itself (Psyco, Stackless, the whole PyPy effort). Also if there's
to be something like a Python Frameworks track I would like to help out
with that.

Another suggestion would be 'Python Frameworks' -- while Language
is about the hard-core Hacker geek stuff, and Applications more for end-user
applications, we could have presentations on the various interesting libraries
and frameworks there are. From Twisted to ReportLab to the various XML
systems. I imagine such a track would be very interesting to python

Web Services frameworks could fit into the Frameworks track as well.
Zope might even, though that framework is big enough to warrant its own
track, also for PR reasons. That said, talks about the Zope 3 framework would
fit pretty well.
