Mike and all the other Eclipsers,

most Linux/Gnome-developers are Python-fans. Most Debian packages are
written in it and Gnome-developers really adore Python/PyGTK. The
Eclipse-project *MUST* have an official TOP-LEVEL Python-project let's say
"the pydt" to attract more Linux-developers

J.F.,

Hey, you won't get an argument from me. I would love to have more
involvement at Eclipse from the Python community. But Eclipse projects don't
happen because the Foundation people wish really really hard. Someone has to
propose, lead and work on them :-)

I believe that there may already be some thinking about Python tooling work
going on as part of the DLTK project. Have you taken a look at
http://www.eclipse.org/dltk/ ?

PyDev is the normal one people cite; but it might switch to DLTK eventually.
