Is what true?  That the above URL is the place to get code to support core
development or that the Vim crowd is being dissed?  <wink>

Barry and I are the nominal maintainers of the python-mode package:


I am also the guy more-or-less responsible for syncing python-mode with the
version delivered as part of the XEmacs packages (last synced about a week
ago).  The GNU Emacs folks wrote their own Python mode from scratch a couple
years ago.  Both are mentioned here:


I have no experience with the GNU Emacs code.

Finally, on a related note, François Pinard sent me a message yesterday
which I have yet to respond to.  He is apparently back in the Pymacs saddle.
I think a Pymacs-based Python mode would be very cool (in part because I am
really not an Emacs Lisp person).
