I agree that doing something is the only way of doing it :)

I do think there are different ways of doing things, though. Some of the
ways will inevitably lead to failure - and I'd like to avoid those.

Specifically, I want to approach the Apache Software Foundation in the
correct manner. Bargning in, yelling the name of an arbitrary reptile,
is hardly the way to go. I also want the opinion of the people currently
using the Python-Apache combination. If nobody is interested in this,
then what is the use of it?

In addition, I want to avoid making things worse for people in the
future. It might be that the issue cannot be adressed right now, but
could be adressed in the future. In that case, a previous negative
experience will not be beneficial.

But rest assured that something will be done. I have already aquired
information on the correct procedures to contact the ASF. Before I do
that, however, I will try to reach a larger part of the Python Web
community and listen to some opinions there. For all I know, someone
else might be doing this as we speak - in which case we should join

I'd welcome further discussion on this topic, and I'll post more
information when I have it.
