Matt Harrison has a very good write-up on the discussions we had during the panel (actually I lifted the list above from his blog post, because he summarized it so well).
One thing that I think all the participants felt, and maybe the audience too, was that 45 minutes was totally not sufficient for this kind of panel. And I know I felt the same thing with the other two panels, for Python-dev and for the Web frameworks. So I'd like to ask people to leave some comments on this post, with ideas about turning these panels into discussions that would last longer, at least 1 hour and even more.
My gut feeling is that there would be a lot of interest in getting framework/library/tool creators together and having a discussion/Q&A with them in front of the audience, with audience participation of course. I'm not sure what the best format would be for this kind of thing -- maybe a round table? But if we get enough ideas, maybe we can fit something like this in next year's PyCon schedule, and allocate it a generous amount of time.
