Hi All,
The Pune "local" team is meeting early next week to discuss details of
PyCon 2012, the most important agenda item being Venue finalization. We
will keep this mailing list updated with the outcome of our discussions.

If anyone is interested in being part of the "local" organizing team for
PyCon 2012, and isn't already on the PyCon Organizers mailing list, please
get in touch with me.
