The Foundation tries to recognize those whose assistance has been
significant in its growth and development as well as its day-to-day
operations. This quarter's Community Service Award winners are two
particularly noteworthy examples.

Stephan Deibel: Stephan was last year's outgoing chairman after four
years in harness. This year Stephan has stepped down as a director,
after helping to ensure that the Foundation's bylaws were reorganized.
Stephan developed to promote Python, and his work as
founder of Wingware ( and a developer of the Wing IDE has
also had a significant impact.

Sean Reifschneider Sean has master-minded the PyCon networking every
time it's worked, and without the support of this always helpful and
reliably competent director our conferences simply would not
have been the same.

Our thanks and congratulations go to both these recipients.
