Cheetah is a Python-powered template engine and code

and energy of Velocity's developers. Thank you.

Cheetah is Open Source Software. Tavis Rudd (me), Mike Orr, 
Chuck Esterbrook, Ian Bicking and Tom Schwaller are the 
core developers. We welcome contributions and suggestions.  
We also welcome any general discussion about Python-based
