At PyCon 2008 we were delighted to share some good news with the Python community: the announcement of the Twisted Software Foundation. Glyph had previously emailed the Twisted mail list, letting those close to the project know of this major event shortly after the paperwork was signed. Before we brought this before a more public audience, we wanted to give companies a chance to become "founding sponsors" -- and this is what has happened at PyCon. We're looking forward to issuing a formal press release about this (including info on the founding sponsors) and will have more details in the near future.
We would like to send a special thank-you out to those sponsors who made contributions immediately. In order of contribution, they are:
- Chris Armstrong
- Michel Pelletier
- AdytumSolutions, Inc.
- Drew Perttula
- Glenn Tarbox
- Ilya Novoselov
Read the initial announcement here. If the video for the announcement made at PyCon gets published somewhere, we will post an update.
Update: Thanks to feedback from Grig Gheorghiu, we now have two domains that direct to the TSF page:
