Funny that.  The FSF paperwork mavens have failed several times (at least
three that I'm aware of) to get paperwork to me for my signature.  The one
time they got the paperwork to me I signed and returned immediately.  They
still didn't get it.  Based on my own personal experience I don't think you
can lay all the blame on the folks who have contributed to python-mode.el.

A lot of people like pdbtrack.  The python-mode project also includes bits
Emacs Lisp and Python code to interface with Pymacs.  I believe both are
unique to the python-mode project.
