As a public service, and completely without Guido's permission, I have
temporarily installed a PDF copy (generated by printing GvR's ppt file to
Acrobat PDFWriter) of his Developers' Day presentation at
If Guido would like to have one of his many minions take a copy and save it
on the Python.org site I will then be able to delete mine. Alternatively, if
he's happy to let it stay there then so am I.
