I've been using mod_python-trunk for a while, and it seems pretty solid. It would be nice to see this released as 3.3.2, unless you're aware of any serious new bugs or stability issues compared to 3.3.1. > Interestingly, recently the ASF created http://attic.apache.org/.

As long as it's compatible with current httpd releases, I don't see any compelling reason to retire it. It seems mod_python development has always occurred in fits and starts. > For existing Python web applications which are bound to mod_python > specific higher level handlers such as mod_python.publisher or > mod_python.psp, the things do look a bit gloomy. Probably true more for PSP than Publisher (depending on how much you depend on some of its more esoteric features). I use Publisher quite a lot, but in a way that conversion to WSGI is relatively easy. > The Python web community is very much going towards WSGI as interface > to web server.
