Yes, the Pypy EU project has a total financing of 1.3 million Euro for a 
project period of 2 years, starting December 2004 and ending on the last of 
November 2006. For most of the organisations participating, the EU pays half 
of the actual costs, while the organisation provides the financing of the 
other half.

The current project members are Strakt (Samule Pedroni, Anders Chrigström, 
Jacob Hallen), Changemaker (Beatrice During), Merlinux (Holger Krekel), 
Tismerysoft (Christian Tismer), Heinrich Heine Universität (Armin Rigo), 
Logilab (Adrien Di Mascio and Ludovic Aubry), with DFKI as project 
coordinator (Alastair Burt and Stephan Busemann).

More partners and people will join the project, as we had some dropouts and 
some problems finding the right forms for some people to get financed.

Changemaker is doing project management and disemination, while Logilab and 
DFKI have projects that focus on extending Python. All the other partners are 
mainly working on reimplementing Python and making Pypy fast, flexible and 

We do have some financing for subsidising travel to sprints for private 
persons (residents of the EU and associated countries). If you are 
interested, Holger is the contact person.
