Off topic-er.  Does anyone have scripts that pull data on how many
committers commit or how many trac admins admin?  I'm not asking for
punitive reasons - I'd be the first against the wall - but I wouldn't
mind graphing it.  Power law, methinks.  With big, confounding, and
jumbley spikes in the Spring for PyCon.

Likewise for mailing list subscriptions.  Personally I've gone back
and forth between subscribing to everything (-list -dev -commits -bugs
-ideas, et al) and subscribing to almost nothing.
