europython at python.org
  is for delegates to discuss things and for the
  organizers to reach out to delegates

europython-improve at python.org
  is for organizers and people wanting to
  help with the organization

It should be fairly obvious where to post a message, IMHO, and this
has worked out well in the past years we've been having an EPC event.
