There is, as of a few days ago. I think we need to discuss what role of 
the wiki will play in the overall documentation scheme and put a 
coherent structure in place before we start jamming stuff in, so I 
haven't made any official announcement on this list yet.

I'd suggest anyone interested in helping with the wiki subscribe to the 
developer's list so we don't end up splitting the discussion between the 
user and dev lists. To subscribe send a message to 
python-dev-subscribe at httpd.apache.org.

People always say they want better documentation, so now's the time to 
step forward and prove it. Nic has, anyone else? :)

Let's get a discussion going, roll up our sleeves and see just how good 
we can make mod_python.
