Wanted: experts in Twisted, Tornado, asyncore or other Python async APIs (greenlets/gevent, Stackless, libevent all welcome!). In python-ideas@python.org we're trying to hash out the async API for the future (for the Python stdlib) and we need input from expert users of the current generation of async APIs.

There has been some interesting discussion around the Python Software Foundation recently, and what makes a "good candidate" for nomination, membership, etc. As part of this, +Jesse Noller shared the links I have pasted below, some of which have been out there for a while. I thought it would be nice to re-expose them to a wider audience :-) (Today was actually the first time I'd seen them!).

http://jessenoller.com/2011/04/17/explaining-the-python-software-foundation-psf-part-1/

Jesse did an absolutely lovely job of exploring these thoughts and ideas. A great read.

In addition, Jesse's been updating the FAQs around this topic, and that on-going work is viewable here:

http://psf-docs.readthedocs.org/en/latest/_docs/faq.html

If you would like to contribute to these efforts, the git repo is here:

Enjoy!

Speaking of a Celtic tribe, Caesar exhibits some rather excellent dry humor:

"These obstacles restricted their movement and made it more difficult to attack their neighbours; and as they are a warlike people they greatly resented this restraint."
