Let me be the first to say, in the fashion that the Internet has taught
us to celebrate a great victory or other action....

Subject: [mod_python] ANNOUNCE: Mod_Python donated to ASF

It is my pleasure to announce that Mod_Python has been donated to the
Apache Software Foundation, and is now a subproject of the httpd server
project (see http://httpd.apache.org/).

I am grateful to ASF for accepting this donation and committing
to further the support of Mod_Python. I believe that this action will
advance the development of Mod_Python, resulting in an ultimately better
and more popular tool for Python developers. I also believe it will
to better position Python as a language of choice for web development, a
need that has been expressed by many.

There are no implications to the current Mod_Python users - the license
the same with the sole difference in that the copyright belongs to ASF

As a consequense of the donation, the CVS repository is now hosted on
cvs.apache.org.  Do not use the SourceForge repository anymore, it will
soon be removed.

There will also be website and mailing changes, but the details are
being finalized and will be announced when ready.
