I think the SIG pages should be migrated to the Wiki. There seems to
be some work proceeding on this:

You could start here:

http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonXml

Look under "W3C DOM-like libraries" for some candidates. I've
maintained libxml2dom for quite some time because I started out with
PyXML and wanted something whose maintenance was guaranteed, even if
it was me who was going to be doing it.
