oDesk want to add a link pointing to Python job listings to our Jobs page. Does anyone have an opinion about whether or not to do it? Is there a formal policy?
I am not advocating for them, but they contacted me so I thought I would deliver the message.

For employers looking for contractors / freelancers, a Python Group would help them find and hire high caliber Python developers (there are over 300 Python developers on oDesk that have high feedback scores).

>> Python could launch an oDesk Group as a way to help its community access high caliber Python developers on oDesk (we could help you recruit developers that meet defined quality thresholds). A few open source organizations have launched Groups on oDesk (Joomla, Drupal, etc). Your community would be able to access vetted talent via your Group. Your users would then be able to evaluate contractors based on online profiles, feedback scores, verified work histories, rate info, etc.
