Another post from Doug Napoleone says (among many other things) "I need to take the very clean and and elegant code of Steve Holden and stuff in into the somewhat organic and undocumented PyCon-Tech code."
It's strange how other people's perceptions of our code can be so different from our own. I am conscious of several areas where that code (published, by the way, as a part of my PyCon 2007 tutorial) really needs revision. But anyway, thanks for the tip of the hat, Doug.
Anyone wanting to help to improve the software support for PyCon should sign up for the PyCon Tech project. It would be a great way to get started in Django in a supportive environment.
