Given that few or none of us seem to (want to) actively contribute to
the wiki, I'm afraid python-dev is not the place to ask.
Perhaps a call should be issued on c.l.py asking interested people to
subscribe to pydotorg (or any other list) and start there?

By the way, I've just looked at the wiki: there are 2 or 3 edits per
day. Compared to the size and vitality of the Python user community,
this is a ridiculously low number.
