[python-uk] Do you use Python..? (Of course you do...)

Hi Jon,

The issue on the member site is resolved and it is now accepting
memberships. In response to your other points (all completely true):

The login page for "sign up as a member" also has an option to create an
account on the right side. Creating an account of the python.org web site
is the first step. Once you have created an account hitting the membership
link will take you to a page to confirm basic membership.

Supporting memberships are intended for individuals. The fee supports the
PSF's mission and confers the right to vote in PSF elections. Companies
should consider sponsorship -

I do appreciate that all the instructions could be clearer and the process
streamlined at all levels. Sadly we are not yet at the point where we have
the staff to do all of the things we'd like, particularly with the hectic
run up to PyCon.

I hope this helps and I hope that everyone will consider helping us with
this funding drive.

Naomi Ceder
PSF Board Chair
