Hi Justin

The biggest question I have right now is whether I need to be a part of
the marketing group to log in to the other sites. I have an FAS
account, and the CLA has been signed, but when I try to sign on to the
TRAC, I get a "you are not allowed here" message, and the wiki tells me
that my login info is bad.

As for what I <3 about Python in Fedora, I would say that it comes down
to the fact that the packages I need are in the repos, so I can manage
everything with one package manager, and the ease of transition to RHEL
instances. That said, I didn't really choose Fedora as a Python
developer, but as someone who appreciates free software and Fedora's
stance on it.
