Some new packages that look interesting

d - "If you have a small project and want to quickly write some docs that don't look like ass." It uses Markdown, pygments and pyquery and keeps things simple. It has none of the capabilities, nor the complexities, of Sphinx.
success - "import success" (waiting for the module to be uploaded though ;-)
Airy - a new Web application development framework. "Contrast to most currently available frameworks, Airy doesn’t use the standard notion of HTTP requests and pages. Instead, it makes use of WebSockets and provides a set of tools to let you focus on the interface, not content delivery."
timerange - generates list of dates in various formats.
pbs - "PBS is a unique subprocess wrapper that maps your system programs to Python functions dynamically." An example given is:
from pbs import ifconfig
print ifconfig("eth0")
