Heh, all it takes is a $10k donation to the PSF.  Or you can make the
checks out to me, if you prefer.  Sshhhh!  Don't tell Guido!

Naw, seriously.  I have created a SF project for python-mode development
and about all I've done so far is to make Skip and Ken co-admins.  I'd
like to move python-mode.el to its CVS (and probably "disable" updates
to Misc/python-mode.el) but I won't have time for that today.  Skip's
been making some checkins to python-mode.el, so he can feel free to set
up the SF project's CVS <wink>.

As far as I'm concerned, anybody who wants check-in privileges on the
python-mode project <http://sf.net/projects/python-mode> is welcome to
it, although I'd hope we'd still discuss some of the controversial or
bigger changes on some mailing list.  To that effect, there is currently
a python-mode@python.org alias which just goes to me and Ken right now. 
I'm willing to turn that into a Mailman list and use that as the main
focal point for mode development.
