[Python-Dev] Volunteer needed to organize summits

I'd like to turn over the organization of the VM and Python Language
Summits at PyCon 2010 to someone else, one or two people.  (The same
person doesn't need to organize both of them.)

Why: in November PyCon will be three months away, so the guest list
needs to be finalized and the invitations need to be sent.  Yet I
can't pull together the motivation to work on them; I contemplate the
task for two minutes and then go do something else.  It's obviously
better if the summit tasks are being actively worked on instead of
just drifting, so I want to give it up now.

What's required: chiefly it's just a matter of sending and replying to
e-mail.  Draw up a guest list (I can provide last year's lists); think
of new people & projects to be added, or e-mail someone to ask for
suggestions; send out invitations and requests for agenda items;
collect the responses so we know how many people are coming.

You can also help moderate the summits on the day of the events, but
if that's not feasible someone else could do it, or the groups could
manage themselves.

(Also sent to pycon-organizers, psf-members.)
