Heh :)

This is a fairly quiet list, but whenever someone posts a job post, a 
conversation will ensue along almost Pythonesque lines:

A: Here's a relevant Python-specific job I'm advertising

B: You can't post Jobs here! It's a mailing list

C: *Cough* actually, you can; we discussed this at some length in the 
Council of 2016

B: Oh yes. But it can't be a recruiter

C: Well, it could be if they're posting something specific and not just 
"Ninja Coders to $$$$"

A: So can I post this job?


So -- please go ahead and post, and if you want to include something in 
the header to help people who are especially sensitive, please do so.
