The next generation Python Software Foundation (PSF)

The PSF was founded in 2001 with a closed membership model in mind. The original idea being that all contributors to Python would become members and to have the PSF provide a platform to defend Python's copyright. Since then, the PSF has changed its focus from a purely legal entity to one that supports the international Python community by providing guidance, and financial and organizational help. At the last PSF Membership Meeting the members decided it was time to acknowledge this change in focus and to open up PSF membership to the whole Python community. This talk will explain the reasons, the new model, and the road map to get it implemented.
