To advertise the bounty, and the success/failure follow-up blog post:

  • On Planet GNOME (by nekohayo)
  • On Planet Ubuntu (by DPic)
  • On reddit.com/r/opensource
  • The Python Announce list
  • !Python on identi.ca
  • !GNOME on identi.ca
  • Mizmo's blog

Afterward, it'd be nice to get a follow-up write-up in a few places. Here are ideas for that:
