Thanks for posting this entry,

The fact that a wiki or help site doesn't get a 
lot of traffic is not an necessarily an indicator 
of it's usfulness.  It indicates to me that the 
product, in this case Tkinter, may be easy to use 
and understand, after working with it a little, A 
lot of help may not be necessary.

A good example is the py2exe help site.
At one time not to long ago there might be 8 to 12 
post per day, or more. Today by my unscientific 
count method, I don't think there are more than 3 
to 4 post per week.  Yet, py2exe and Tkinter is 
almost as valuable as Python. If we couldn't 
build programs for Windows, where would a python 
programmes's money come from?

Thanks again,
