i just noticed that Jonathan David Riehl has sent a message
to pypy-dev at codespeak.com
which didn't work (codespeak.NET would be right). So i resent
my reply to his message which actually cites all of his mail.

Good idea :-)

Right. That certainly makes sense.

After the last sprints and EuroPython everyone needs to catch some
breath, i guess. I am usually hanging out on #pypy on irc.freenode.net.
You are welcome :-)

I can't answer too long because i am currently cooking :-)
And probably Armin (Rigo) or others might give a more detailed answer, anyway.
But it's always a good idea to check out the source code. Therefore
you need a "subversion" client. Jens-Uwe Mager has prepared some
client side installs:
In this doc-directory (http://codespeak.net/pypy/doc) you'll also find some
unsorted documentation which might help in understanding what we have been
doing this year.
Also, at least i am quite interested to get to know what you have done
or what you found out about Python-to-C translators.
