Of course :-)
I have mentioned it before on this list, but didn't get much response, 
so I didn't think it was relevant.
All of my projects are available on my website under 
python, but I have only been using python for a couple of months, so 
please do not expect too much, all I realy did was use the bash commands 
I found elsewhere and add a little Python.

It would be cool if we had a "to do list" (like someone else mentioned), 
and I would be happy to help building and maintaining an online version 
of this.
As I mentioned my Python skills are somewhat limited, but I would love 
to help any way I can.

btw. should I just contact Gustin Johnson by mail, or is there a IRC 
where he hangs out ?
