Promoting Python as web application development language

In a recent thread  on the mod_python  mailing list, I'm wondering
why there isn't a Python link on the main Apache web site. There are
PHP, Perl and Tcl links but Python is nowhere present.
It is of course evident that the lack of a link is due to the lack of
perceived usage of Python as a web application development language.
That, in turn, is due to the lack of exposure on sites like the Apache
I would like to see this change. Specifically, as I write in my post on
the mod_python mailing list,
"What I would like to do is get a link to the mod_python web site
under the "Sister Projects" section of http://www.apache.org/, or
(preferably) find out how a python.apache.org could be created,
either as a general Python-Apache site or as a direct link to the
mod_python web site (perl.apache.org is actually the mod_perl
I have concluded that before any such thing can be done, the opinions of
the people currently using the Python-Apache combination (which I
suspect is no small number) need to be solicited to some degree.
I would like to hear what you think about the creation of a
"python.apache.org" (or equivalent) that would focus on the topic of web
app development with Python and Apache. I imagine the site itself being
quite slim with some essential information and links to other projects,
particularly to the mod_python site.
Also, I would like to hear about any related projects or any previous
contact to the Apache Software Foundation.
I apologise for the cross-post but I feel it is warranted in this case.
I'm only subscribed to the mod_python mailing list so please keep me or
that list Cc'ed if you reply.
