Hi Jesse,

Thanks for your note. I am forwarding it to the group who maintain the
content to which you refer. I agree it would be helpful for readers to know
of the availability of your Python product.

> The "Python for AS/400" entry can be moved underneath as well. Something
> like "Alternatively, *http://www.iseriespython.com*
> <http://www.iseriespython.com/>hosts an AS/400 port of Python 2.7, ported

> ("AS/400" is a previous name of our platform, now outdated by well over a

> Please let me know if this is a feasible request, and if there's anything
> I can provide to help this happen.
> Thanks in advance!
