Give it some time. Nobody - not even the Python core devs - have access
to the machines. It's going to take at least several weeks to get the
infrastructure running and to establish a policy.

>From my perspective NumPy and Sage both count as prominent Python
projects. Heck, you are in competition with tools like Matlab and you
ain't looking bad! Furthermore you could make better use of the machines
than Django because you are using way more C extensions and esoteric
libraries.

I recommend you subscribe to the snakebite list and bring up your
interest. You got my +1 already. For now the list is
snakebite-list@googlegroups.com but it will move to another server
(probably Python.org) eventually.
