Yes, a whole mailinglist of people.

The only caveat is that, as a matter of policy, we do not 
do homework for you. So if you are stuck on a homework 
problem show us what you have done, your expected 
approach and tell us what doesn't work or where you are stuck.

We will then supply hints, pointers or corrections as appropriate.

In general always tell us:
- Which OS you are on
- Which Python version
- Include short sample code to illustrate the problem
- Include full error text

Finally always use REPLY ALL in your mail tool to include 
the list as well as the individual to which you are replying.

Otherwise enjoy the tutor mailing list. :-)
