No one disagrees that Python needs better marketing material.  At the
last PyCon a group of people sat down in a pydotorg BoF and agreed
that yes, we do need a management-friendly marketing site, and that we
could put it on a separate hostname (something.python.org) so that the
current www.python.org wouldn't have to be changed.

However, no one has actually sat down and written such a site, or even
outlined it.  Let me encourage you to go ahead and do that.  You could
draft the outline on a Wiki page, and then later figure out an
attractive design and organization for a new site.
