Try the tutor mailing list, linked to at the Python web site:

Also, the Python community are relatively forgiving of "dumb questions", at
least compared to the average computer professional, so just dig in and ask
(comes of the Computer Programming for Everyone idea and the fact they
prefer to work with a humane computer language rather than a sadistic one
like Perl.)  The only questions that sometimes draw hostile responses are
those of people who haven't bothered to read the tutorial or looked in the
library reference for what they need.
