FUDcon talk: Different Species of Python

I'm at FUDCon in Tempe, Arizona.  Today I gave a talk entitled "Different Species of Python", comparing the various implementations of the Python language, and how we might better support them within Fedora.

I hope this will be of interest to both the folks on the Planet Fedora and the Planet Python aggregators.

I ran overtime a bit: lots of interesting questions and discussion on the internals of the two CPython implementations, so I didn't get to cover Jython, IronPython and PyPy as much as I might have done, or the packaging issues, but hopefully a useful time was had by all.

I've uploaded a copy of my slides to my Fedora People page, as PDF here and as ODF here - enjoy!

Tim Flink heroically transcribed the talk and questions for those on IRC.  A transcript can be found here
