Congrats to Gregory for this 'official' recognition for the great work he did
with mod_python. And thank you to the apache board for recognising the need
for an 'official' python effort in such an open way. Let's face it, there is no
better place for an apache module to live but close to apache (httpd)'s place.
Certainly the most intuitive place from a user's perspective. And this official
blessing brings the additional advantage to cut through the confusion: there
are not 10 'official' python' flavored apaches for a newcomer to choose from.
(enough headaches just installing the beast and learning it)

> It is my pleasure to announce that Mod_Python has been donated to the
> Apache Software Foundation, and is now a subproject of the httpd server
> project (see http://httpd.apache.org/).
> I am grateful to ASF for accepting this donation and committing resources
> to further the support of Mod_Python. I believe that this action will
> advance the development of Mod_Python, resulting in an ultimately better
> and more popular tool for Python developers. I also believe it will serve
> to better position Python as a language of choice for web development, a
> need that has been expressed by many.
> There are no implications to the current Mod_Python users - the license is
> the same with the sole difference in that the copyright belongs to ASF
> now.
> As a consequense of the donation, the CVS repository is now hosted on
> cvs.apache.org.  Do not use the SourceForge repository anymore, it will
> soon be removed.
> There will also be website and mailing changes, but the details are still
> being finalized and will be announced when ready.
