Been browsing the Django mailinglist and found this guy (link above) and some other people saying they're willing to donate money towards the OS effort that is Django. That's nuts and is a failed practice but it does mean a lot. Zope had this about 4-5 years ago too but that was then. Clearly the heat is all on Django (and Rails admittedly) at the moment. Well done to all involved!
I've been doing quite a bit of Django this weekend and this instant quick rush I got from getting started has gone off and now starts to become just normal trudging. At the moment it's the templating language that annoys the hell out of me.
In conclusion: Today Django won another point in the race for my attention.
