inpycon mailing list is about discussions related to PyCon India. PyCon India
is the leading Python conference in India, thus this list also works as the
mailing list with the highest number of Python developers in India, including
many new people.

Now, pointing out how we have a new CPython core developer, who is from India,
and he is also the lead developer of the mailing list software [1] we
are using to
have this very conversation is a very much valuable information for the
community. Especially the new folks, they need better roles models from the
upstream community to look up to (than the kind of role models who
tries to mock other
Python conferences or have a problem with people wearing t-shirts of other
programming languages or conferences).
