This is a most welcome development.

Although there may be people who argue that usage of this library is overdue, 
any effort or initiative that can encourage more sharing and collaboration 
amongst Python Web projects and revive channels like the Web SIG, so that 
best practices can be propagated and projects may look after each other 
instead of justifying factionalism through the idea that there must be 
winners and losers, is an initiative worth supporting.

Thanks for keeping us informed!


P.S. Personally, I'd either not heard of passlib or had forgotten about its 
existence, but then again I'm not doing password handling myself on a 
day-to-day basis.
