This isn't really a PSF activity, but it fits in with the PSF's advocacy 
efforts and I've not yet found a taker on the
advocacy at python.org mailing list, so I am posting here as well:

For some years now I've been the editor of the Python Success Stories 
collection hosted on pythonology.org
and content-franchised to various other websites.

I'm finding that I no longer have time to run this effort as well as it 
should be and am trying to find a replacement
editor.  The minimum effort would be to edit the 5-6 stories per year 
that come in without any attempts to beat
the bushes for new stories.  It takes an average of about 2-3 hours per 
story and requires a strong command of
the English language.

It would also be good to find someone interested in trying to take this 
a bit further:  For example, actively
seeking out stories from high-profile users of Python, working with 
O'Reilly to get them to print a
third booklet, creating a better classification system, improving the 
story hosting site, writing something so
python.org's copies are automatically updated (currently it's manual), 
and so forth.

If you're interested in any or all of these tasks, please email me 
privately.  I'm happy to coordinate between
multiple volunteers.
