Well, it's official - a labor of love from myself and many others - with special thanks to Andrew Kuchling for getting it over the finish line. The Python Software Foundation has officially announced a call for proposals for the redesign of the Python.org site and properties.
You can see the RFP here: http://pythonorg-redesign.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
It's taken me several years of false starts, other attempts (including skunkworks attempts), political and social discussions, and the hard work of many to make this come to fruition. Now, we can only sit back and hope that we see some amazing proposals from the community and others.
I sincerely hope this will be successful, and that we will see a modern, well designed Python.org that showcases not only the language, but the vibrant, open, welcoming and active community we are all part of.
