As Fabian Fagerholm wrote aug 22nd, I believe python.apache.org shouldn't 
equal mod_python. Although mod_python is a great product, it isn't the only 
way to use Python with Apache.

The community around mod_dtcl took the initial initiative to move to 
tcl.apache.org and invited the other Tcl alternatives to join in. This has 
now resulted in a new module, Apache Rivet, which combines the efforts of 
mod_dtcl and neowebscript.

If a similar symbiosis can be archived in the Python web community, I believe 
it we benefit all of us. On the other hand, if python.apache.org == 
mod_python, it may split the Python web community.
