    anatoly> Where does webmaster@ redirect then? pydotorg@ ?

No.  webmaster is its own list.  I don't know if it's required by RFC, but
even if it's not, it is required by convention.  It includes people who are
responsible for the care and feeding of the underlying Apache webservers as
well as people responsible for the content of the various sites.
Traditionally, pydotorg has been a private list.  Initial triage of messages
arriving at the webmaster address is performed by people like Aahz and a few
others.  They direct messages to other email aliases as appropriate.

Let me add one other point here.  We have undergone this total rewrite of
the website once before.  I don't recall it being all that fun then.  That
probably has a lot to do with the fact that some of us old-timers are
hesitant to make sweeping changes to the way everything is done.  Please,
focus on one thing, the content of the website.  Please don't try to change
absolutely everything.
