Removed Tomek from B4.resources.txt.
Added a small build script to the funding dir, just to update the

-Quality of partnership, involvement of users and SMEs 
-While all the partners except Changemaker have staff with Python
-programming skills that will enable them to fulfill computer program
-development in the various tasks of the project, each partner brings
-unique skills or functions, without which the project is not complete.
-has pervious experience of being a project coordinator in EU projects,
-ensuring smooth communication between the project and the FP6 project
-Max Planck Institut
-will showcase how to apply the results of the project in the research
-environment. The insitute currently leverages the speed of development
-with Python but would be able to solve a wider range of problems with
-a faster version of the language.
-University of Southampton
-is the employer of Armin Rigo, who is the lead architect of the whole
-project as well as the author of Psyco, the blueprint for how to do
-optimisation in Pypy.
-FIXME: Where does Samuele go?
-Samuele Pedroni is the main developer of Jython, an implementation of
-Python that uses the Java Virtual Machine. He is an expert on how to
-generate code for different virtual machines. He brings experience in
-this field and a creative mind to the project.
-brings manangement knowhow and entrepreneurial skills to the project
-as well as showcasing how to apply the results of the project in a
-major business application.
-Strakt will also bring Tim Peters to the project. Tim has for several
-years been a core developer of the present major implementation of
-Python, what we call CPython. Apart from being an outstanding
-programmer, Tim has intimate knowledge about all the details of the
-Python language definition.
-With 12 full time and 6 part time employees, Strakt is an SME
-Alex Martelli (FIXME: Where does Alex go? PBF?)
-Being a prolific writer and popular speaker as well as a Python
-programmer, Alex is uniquely suited for widely disseminating the
-progress and the results of the project.
-Technischen Universität Berlin
-will have Tomasz Meka doing his diploma work for a Computer Science
-degree. We believe that the Pypy project opens up new avenues for
-studies and research from undergraduate level to advanced researchers.
-We hope to verify this through Tomeks work in the project.
-adds rare project management skills by managing not only the project,
-but the learning processes of the project participants as well as the
-group dynamics between the different members. We intend to document
-and disseminate the management of change throughout the project.
-Changemaker is also the contact point for Axis Communications, who
-will showcase how to integrate Pypy in an embedded device.
-focuses on constraints and aspect oriented programming and will verify
-that Pypy is extensible with specialised language features.
-With 6 full time employees, Logilab is an SME representative.
-Python Business Forum
-is an industry organisation for companies where Python is a central
-part of the business model. The PBF is registered as a non-profit
-organisation under Swedish law. It has approximately 50 SME
-members. The Forum has a board, which focuses on administration and
-strategic issues, while the main activities occur in Special Interest
-Groups (SIGs). Each SIG controls its own activities but reports to the
-board in financial matters.
-The PBF will form a Pypy SIG with **Holger Krekel** as chairman to
-handle its involvement in the project.
-The PBF brings a number of SME parties to the project who will be
-eager to apply Pypy to their various products. The selection of which
-products and companies that should do validations will be made later
-in the project, since it is impossible to tell which ones will produce
-the most useful results when validations starts some 24 months from
-**Holger Krekel** will also be an active PBF representative in the
-project, with a focus on devlopment, packaging and dissemination
-tools. He will also be a main contributor in matters of systems
-**Christian Tismer** will join the project under the auspices of the
-PBF. Chritian is the developer of Stackless Python, which is the
-blueprint for how we intend to implement persistant threads.
-Ability to deliver
-DFKI, Logilab, Max Planck Intitut and University of Southampton have
-already successfully participated in EU projects, so their ability to
-deliver on another project should not be in doubt.
-Strakt, Tismer and Martelli have all recently produced substantial
-products, which show their capability to handle large undertakings.
-Krekel has demonstrated his ability to deliver results during the
-prototype phase that has preceeded this application. For the rest of
-the PBF, it should be noted that the chairman of the SIG is a member
-of the project, as well as 3 of the members of the PBF board;
-Creighton, Hallén and Martelli. The stated merits of these people and
-their respective organisations should vouch for the PBF fulfilling its
-Changemaker has a number of documented successful projects. Further
-details can be found under B 5.1.
-A special circumstance is that several of the project participants
-have already collaborated in developing a proof of concept for
-Pypy. This means that the ability to collaborate and to deliver
-results has already been tested under circumstances that are very
-similar to what they will be during the project.
