hehe... thanks :-)

Nothing against modpython.org, but as I mentioned in my original note, I'd
rather see this occur on httpd.apache.org. For a couple reasons: help to
create a locus of information in an already well-traffic'd site, and to
enable community management. Grisha could set up a number of things to
enable other people to work on the modpython.org site, but I would guess
that administrative stuff isn't where he'd like to spend his time :-)  The
ASF already has the setup for community-managed sites.

Oh yah. That's just my personal POV. I never push hard on it because I
recognize that it wouldn't be well-supported. But that doesn't stop me from
trying to start a meme in that direction :-)

Agreed. As I mentioned, the CVS module is named 'httpd-site' and patches
against that are just as welcome as patches against mod_python, mod_psp, or
what have you.

Wake up people :-) ... there are more reasons to send in patches than just a
bugfix or doc enhancement... :-)

Hm? What foundation link? (i.e. which page?) If you're talking about on
httpd.apache.org ... we do need those. I actually find it quite annoying
when projects don't adequately link back to the ASF. The ASF is more than
just a code repository, so enabling and expanding its visibility is (IMO)
