"Python's fearless leader and self-proclaimed "Benevolent Dictator for Life" (BDFL), Guido van Rossum, recently wrote an open letter to the community, proclaiming Python's decision to move the project to new auspices in the Open Source realm."

"Python is growing rapidly. In order to take it to the next level, I've moved with my core development group to a new employer, BeOpen.com," van Rossum wrote. "BeOpen.com is a startup company with a focus on Open Source communities, and an interest in facilitating next-generation application development. It is a natural fit for Python."

"BeOpen.com develops online communities for Open Source application users, developers and interested parties through its network of portal Web sites. It also offers support and custom development for Open Source applications specific to major corporations and governmental entities."
