Webware For Python Wiki


Welcome to the Webware project's Wiki site. This Wiki was created in October 2001, using the Webware framework. Its purpose is to facilitate discussion about Webware: its design, its use and its future. This Wiki is intended to supplement, not replace, the Webware homepage, webware lists and docs . If you have questions, rather than comments, please use the lists. If you are contributing code patches or notes that are worthy of inclusion in the Webware docs, please post to the lists as well.
