Sounds good to me :-)

Have we considered a games track BTW? It strikes me that one of the more
public uses of python at the moment, and a big draw is writing games. It's
also potentially the sort of area which you could potentially draw in a
sponsor for. (Track sponsors?)

A games track could cover things like pygame, pygame toolsets, how to embed 
python inside a games engine, exposing C/C++ objects as python objects & vice 
versa and similar areas. I know some of these areas aren't really specific to 
games, but they are specifically interesting to games people.

Lots of people do seem to be looking at that area at the moment, but I don't 
really see the point of specialising it. ( *sobs* ;-) )

Fair enough -- I'll take a look at it :-)

One thing I might do is go through the website (probably at the weekend or 
next week though) and list the functions of all the pages in the site from 
last year.
