Hi all,

Just a reminder that we're meeting tomorrow at 7pm!  It's going to be a 
great meeting- Brett will be showing us how to package up modules and 
contribute them to the Cheeseshop, and Leo (visiting us from Santiago, 
Chile) will be talking to us about Django and Jython- a great secret 
weapon to shoehorn Python into Java projects.  ;)

And if you're downtown today 5ish, stop in at Bailey's Taproom for a 
casual get together to welcome Leo and the Vidoop transplants to Portland.
