One thing we've been talking about recently is making attracting Python
developers a 2016 marketing priority. This fits well with Fedora
Workstation's developer target audience¹, and also fits nicely with
Fedora since we use Python heavily in our infrastructure and generally
have a lot of Python expertise on the engineering side.

But, we don't have much by way of market research. I'd really love to
build that up — what problems _could_ was solve for Python developers
looking for a desktop OS or a deploy platform?
