Graham, you have an unparalleled grasp of the inner workings of Mod Python
and I've done a fair bit of technical writing in my time.  I'm game for
co-authoring a book with you.

I think that the structure of the existing Mod Python documentation with
expanded discussion and examples would make an excellent foundation for the
first part of the book.  To that, we could add more advanced topics such as
content templating, servelets, and frameworks.

My current 'pet' project uses Mod Python in conjunction with Apache's Xerces
and Xalan to deliver XHTML web content from XML data using XSLT.  I could
write a bit about that and I suspect that some of the creators of other
framework systems (Vampire, mp_servelets, etc.) could be cajoled into

Then again, I might just be crazy...

Best Regards,

Maybe next year when I have caught up with the documentation on my own
software. :-)

Anyway, I am still learning how to use mod_python myself, I must just be
good at making it look like I know something. People would actually be quite
shocked at how little actual web development I have done. I get so caught up
in writing the infrastructure and underlying glue, that I never get around
to actually using it for anything.
