Turnout was good, but the atmosphere was even better. Lots of discussions and questions at each step, frequently with the people discussing with each other. There's a lot of interest in the topics of WSGI/eggs/Paste/middleware, and virtualenv/buildout/PyPI, and then how all the relates to particular frameworks like Zope and Plone. My guess is that there is a pent-up demand for something like Repoze, which tries to take all those things people think they should get started on, and make it Just Work in the Zope/Plone world.
People really had some cool angles on how all this could shake out. I really enjoyed the meeting. Thanks to Alex Clark for organizing and Eric Coffman (and TNC) for hosting.
Regarding the material, I spent a bunch of time making progress on how to give a presentation and then have the material ready for good review afterwards. Unfortunately, I still haven't found exactly the process that I'm looking for, but got a lot closer.
Plus, I know a lot more about Paste now. [wink]
Also in Repoze news, Chris and Tres had a talk last night in Chapel Hill, NC and one tonight in Charlotte, NC.
