[ANN] New python.org and Call for Volunteers

We would like to announce that the beta python site will be
made live on the 5th March 2006. In order to ensure that the switch is
as smooth as possible, we are asking for some volunteers to help in
finalising the migration and checking of content and links. Guido van
Rossum will be announcing this during his keynote speech at Pycon and
there will be sprints from 27th February through to the 2nd March. All
the information you'll need is here.


It is our intention to move the current site to
http://archive.python.org and to allow certain paths of the new beta
site to still use the old content (for instance, it is likely that the
/docs section will remain as is until a new documentation template has
been approved).

The work won't be finished once the site goes live however, work has
already started on adding the facility for discussion, annotation and
additions to the website by integrating wiki page content. The plan is
for the best bits of the community contributions to be included as
appendices to each page of the site. Please get involved now and help us
to reach this ultimate goal as soon as possible.

If you wish to volunteer some time, please send an email to
tparkin at python.org and we will add you to the list.
