I'm a big fan of your RPM packages, and I'm currently running python 1.5.2
on a redhat 6.0 based machine. ;)

as a general point, why don't we make up a web page that will allow the
uploading of (small) modules, to be approved by a moderator, via a webpage?
this would seem to simplify the problem of a 'group writable' directory. I
have some code I've been working on that might help push this along based on
medusa, and being able to have a file section is something I've wanted to
kick in the right direction for a while.

how about this.. if you can try to help me get 'getdatemodule' out to the
masses with your spec file skills (mine are a bit weak), I'll try to help
you with my web application skills (which I am stronger in). does that sound
