SIG for Python Resource Cataloguing

This SIG exists in order to discuss and build a catalog of Python resources. The SIG charter is:

The Python Catalog SIG aims at producing a master index of Python software and other resources. It will begin by figuring out what the requirements are, converging on a design for the data schema, and producing an implementation. ("Implementation" will almost certainly include mean a set of CGI scripts for browsing the catalog, and may also contain a standard library module for automatically fetching and installing modules, if the SIG decides that's a worthwhile feature.)
