New submission from Georg Brandl:

>From docs@:

The howto-advocacy is interesting.

You might consider removing the following sentences, which I found personally gave me a negative impression:

"python hasn't had all the publicity" to my mind gives the impression that python is not popular.

"python is definitely not a toy language that only usable for small tasks". This gives to me the impression that you feel many people think it is.

Section "who's going to support it?" a company needs to be able to call someone, pay for support right now, within one hour, not on a maybe basis. I feel either remove this section or suggest links to three companies providing python support.

Section "python is freely available , how good can it be?" I felt what I wanted to see was not that Linux and apache are good, but why python is good.

I think the advocacy howto was written quite a while ago and could use a makeover.
