Thanks for posting this list of names. I had put in a pyFOIA
request for this data a few years ago, but to my surprise, was
flat out denied. I'm not sure how exhaustive this list may be,
but publicly displaying the "commit hierarchy" within the Python
community is very import for those who may want to get involved.

Thanks for putting Mark in his place. He has been brow
beating folks on this list (myself included) for years, and
i'll bet he now feels as tiny as D'Aprano did -- when GvR
scolded him for disrespecting a Noob on Python-ideas.

  Yeah, i was watching! 



Now that Mark's lack of "commit cred" has been exposed, we can
safely ignore his hollow and hypocritical bullying. And now
that he has been de-fanged, he will be forced to seek employment
elsewhere. Hmm, my suggestion is that he market himself as an
on-call "peanut butter removal service". A venture that will
no doubt be successful, seeing that he has two "heads up" on
his competition!
