Following that last note, we need a new maintainer for python-dateutil. It has a non-trivial number of modules depending on it, including from high-profile companies. Yet, I'm not maintaining it anymore for quite a while, and the new maintainer turns out to not have time for it either. If you are an active Python developer that cares about the module and cares about its community, please do get in touch. Please do consider whether you'll have time and enough interest on the module to provide a healthy maintenance story.

Great 11-minute TEDx talk from a 13 year old about how he is hacking his education in the pursuit of happiness and health.

Do you know how to build a strawbale house or want to know how to use cob? Always thought composting was a good idea but don't know how to start? Worried using petro-chermicals is going to be unsustainable in the long run but don't know what to use instead?

Join us at the new Sustainable Living Q&A site; it's like Stack Overflow for eco-loonies like you and me!
