Also (from someone who is on the fringes of the pydotorg admin set): I
don't know that much about subversion administration.  But, if it
proves necessary, as it's an open source project and all, I'm willing
to put some time into learning about it.  I'm *much* less likely to do
this for a closed source package unless someone is paying me to do it.
Maybe I'm the only person who thinks this way, but if not, it's
something to think about.


42. You can measure a programmer's perspective by noting his
    attitude on the continuing vitality of FORTRAN.
