I've been reading this newsgroup and the Tutor list for a while (I'm still
a relative novice). It seems to me that a more lively glossary wiki might
well help reduce the repetition of some responses on both lists. (Sure,
not everyone will search before asking, but one can hope, right?) I can
say that as a learner, I would very much value a more vigorously
maintained glossary wiki.
On "the effort where my mouth is" principle I have gone and added several
entries: duck typing, dynamically typed, statically typed, and type. But,
as a newbie, I am not wholly confident that what I have said is entirely
So please, if anyone has an interest in keeping a good glossary up to
date, surf by http://manatee.mojam.com/python-glossary and heal my errors
or extend the glossary yourself.
Best to all and thanks,
