The Types-SIG was very active at its inception; indeed, I still have 142 old
Types-SIG msgs in my inbox I haven't yet read!

Note that the traffic dropped to essentially nothing several weeks after you
(Guido) posted your own last msg to it.  I don't think that's coincidence.
You were an active initial participant, and when you dropped out most of us
likely figured you had some other ideas in mind for Python2 and there was
little point to proceeding without you.

So, like everything else that goes wrong in the Python world, it was
entirely Gordon McMillan's fault <wink>.

I'd kill the SIG due to lack of activity.  I'm sure interest in the topics
remains high among many, though ("Types SIG"-related debates have continued
non-stop on c.l.py).
