I'm CC'ing this to Jason as he has set up most of the wiki and blog  
engines on our new system.

If you guys don't mind, we'll set up a wiki (and/or blog if needed)  
similar to what bioperl and biomoby are already using.

We'll set the site up at http://biopython.open-bio.org  for you to  
work on and when things are set we can simply make the switch.

The only real time constraint is our upcoming loss of IP connectivity  
at Wyeth for the existing Open Bio web and CVS sourcecode servers, I  
really don't want to move your python based website code over to the  
new server hardware since you are not seriously committed to using  
it. I also can't move the old server from Wyeth to our new colo cage  
simply due to space and power reasons.

We'll let you know when the Wiki is up. Thanks again!
