Subject Re: [mod_python] Making web site more useful. (Was: OS X / Apache 2 / mod_python bug)
Date Sun, 20 Mar 2005 02:58:16 GMT

I think your assessment is right on - quite a few people aspire to make 
great improvements to mod_python, yet very few actually deliver anything 
for those same old reasons (me included) - the job, the family, life, etc. 
BTW, I'm not discouraged by this, this is perfectly normal IMO.
