    Major New Internet Portal Python Powered!

    On the edu-sig, David Scherer reminds us what CP4E (and
    Python) is all about:
        http://www.python.org/pipermail/edu-sig/2000-February/000098.html
    "CP4E *is* about computers.  It's about the incredibly
    versatile machines sitting on all our desks, and (soon)
    in our pockets and around our wrists and in our clothing
    and cars and walls.  It's about giving ordinary people
    some real control over those objects, the basic tools
    they will need to learn more about them, and the freedom
    to change or extend software that isn't right for them."

    New guidelines for patch contributions:

    Python's CVS repository can be accessed via the web
        http://cvs.python.org/

    The edu-sig deals with everything related to using Python
    in education (except, perhaps, whether Python should remain
    case sensitive or not).  Great discussions, this far:

    The import-sig will design a new architecture for the import
    facilities in Python (to better support embedding, archives,
    installers, etc):
