"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."
