I'm afraid the mailing list you posted to is for the development *of* 
Python and not the use of Python.

On the Python-tutor or Python-list mailing lists (or their google groups 
/ gmane gateways if you prefer a web interface) you will find people 
willing and able to answer your questions.

All the best,
