OK, You probably don't need the Python tutor list then :-)
Have you tried asking for ideas on the main python language
list (aka comp.lang.python)

Pick one you are interested in.
And don;t worry so much about Python being your core competence, make it 
programming. There are far more opportunities that way.

Go to SourceForge, search for Python projects. Pick one you find 
interesting. Get involved.

Or alternatively look at the jobs adverts and apply for some.
Ask for feedback after interviews, that's a pretty good way to rate 
yourself. If somebody is willing to pay you then they must rate you!
