I'm not entirely sure but I don't think PHP is "sponsored" by the ASF. I
think the "projects" listed on www.apache.org are highly different in
their level of integration with the ASF. For example, PHP is largely a
separate project while mod_perl seems to be more integrated.

On the Apache Projects page
(http://www.apache.org/foundation/projects.html), I found the following:

    "The Apache Software Foundation is always looking for new or
    existing collaborative software development projects that are in
    need of a home. This includes both projects related and unrelated to
    the existing ASF projects."

mod_python does have the infrastructure in place - there's a web page
and a mailing list - so there is no need for that kind of collaboration.
But I do think the project could benefit from more exposure, and that
Apache could benefit from having closer ties with Python. You say:

Could this be an opportunity to adress the issue?

Or to put it another way: Why should there *not* be a python.apache.org?
