End of summer fruit from comp.lang.python and related trees:

    The next International Python Conference is scheduled, and the
    program committee eagerly awaits paper submissions:

    Andreas Jung self-deprecatingly misses the elegance of a simple
    program he wrote to beautify XML:

    While we're talking about XML, there are announcements from the
    FourThought folks of the backend tools they talked about in

    Mark Hammond says that "it works fine", whether he's talking about
    MTS, the registry, audits, permissions, remote servers, etc.
    We're getting jaded!

    Mark also announces that his win32 extensions are now under CVS

    In the "scary" category, Greg Ewing takes a sneaky way around
    an implementation trick and pretends it's the "design pattern"
    that Magnus Hetland asked for (and Magnus agrees!):

    Tim Peters regales us with more details about strings in Python
    than you cared to know about:

    Among lots of rambling dispatches on the topic of Turing
    completeness and other nonsense, Greg Ewing sets us straight on
    the future of Python:

    In the field of useless algorithms people like to bicker about,
    the ugly truth emerges that version skew exists even for
    "authoritative" books:

PS: Your editor wants to know if you prefer URLs or pipermail URLs -- send him email at

Everything you want is probably one or two clicks away in these pages:'s Python Language Website is the center of Pythonia

      Much of Python's real work takes place on Special-Interest Group
          mailing lists

      Python Consortium emerges as an independent nexus of activity

      Python To-Do List anticipates some of Python's future direction

      Python Journal is at work on its second issue

      Links2Go is a new semi-automated link collection; it's impressive
      what AI can generate

    Archive probing trick of the trade:
