This is important since we do not have a tutorial on python, like last year.

If we can have a page on the wiki which lists colleges whose
students/faculty know python,
(like http://wiki.python.org/moin/BangPypers/PythonCompaniesInIndia)
students/faculty (and others)
on the mailing list can add to it. Also, students/faculty can use their
contacts to find out about
Python related activity in the colleges around them...

One way to see that the poster reaches the right place is to send it through
a faculty or student of the college.
Having contact-names/email in addition to the college name on the wiki page
proposed above,
will see that we know whom to contact for this...

Yeah! Posters sent now go to the dustbin for sure. Most colleges open late
August or early September.
Sending posters before that is a bad idea.
