Noteworthy items this week from Pythondom:

Michael Stroeder announces pyCA-0.6.2 - a set of scripts and CGI-BIN programs written in Python for setting up and running a certificate authority using OpenSSL.
http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=553266414

Sean Reifschneider announces sockserv, a SMTP/NNTP/POP- like server module that makes it easy to create command / response type servers.
http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=553266413

Tony Ibbs announces v0.3 for his metalanguage for mxTextTools
http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=553266415
[Note: mxTextTools features an unusual and extremely fast parsing engine with an incomprehensible API; Tony has been slowly chipping away at making the interface non-hostile for a year or so.]

Mike Fletcher posts mandelbrot.py
http://www.deja.com/=dnc/getdoc.xp?AN=554408930 which shows off both wxPython and the Numeric extensions.

The subject of automatic garbage collection returns, this time with a practical cast: Fredrik Lundh on how it would be helpful:

James Logajan on why he prefers the current approach:

And finally, Bijan Parsia gives pointers to some modern GC implementations that should ease James' concerns.

Tim Peters exposes his impractical bent, and shows that an apparently simple "lottery" game isn't so simple:

and
