I'd rather not do it myself, but I respect those who do, because it
produces knowledge." -- Anton Vredegoor

"Python and Java are not diametrically opposed religions that must fight
to the death in jihad, despite the existence of loonies favoring exactly
that. They solve different problems; sometimes in similar ways, sometimes
not." -- Mark Hughes

this conflicts with a proposed change of the assignment 'operator'.

Everything you want is probably one or two clicks away in these pages:

Python.org's Python Language Website is the traditional
center of Pythonia
Notice especially the master FAQ

PythonWare complements the digest you're reading with the
daily python url
Mygale is a news-gathering webcrawler that specializes in (new)
World-Wide Web articles related to Python.
While cosmetically similar, Mygale and the Daily Python-URL
are utterly different in their technologies and generally in
their results.

comp.lang.python.announce announces new Python software. Be
sure to scan this newly-revitalized newsgroup at least weekly.

Brett Cannon continues the marvelous tradition established by
Andrew Kuchling and Michael Hudson of summarizing action on the
python-dev mailing list once every other week.

The Python Package Index catalogues packages.

The somewhat older Vaults of Parnassus ambitiously collects references
to all sorts of Python resources.

Much of Python's real work takes place on Special-Interest Group
mailing lists

The Python Business Forum "further[s] the interests of companies
that base their business on ... Python."

The Python Software Foundation has replaced the Python Consortium
as an independent nexus of activity

Cetus does much of the same

Python FAQTS

The old Python "To-Do List" now lives principally in a
SourceForge reincarnation.
