My lack of contribution to the Jython effort compared to the endless hours (weeks!) it has saved me in my day-job is a constant source of embarrassment for me.
Somebody recently made the point that Jython gets a sort of commercial twang by virtue of its association with Java. I think this is true and can be leveraged. If we could just get a Sun or IBM or a BEA or a Nokia to donate - not cash - but developer time - to Jython I think that would be a great way forward.
We are a small company compared to the Sun's, IBM's, BEA's or Nokia's of this world but I would hope that we too would be able to contribute along these lines. To make such a contribution of paid-for developer time, I need to make a case and answer the inevitable question "who else is involved and helping out in this way?". I would love to answer with some well known company names.
I guess what I'm saying is that what Jython badly needs is one or two high-visibility donors of developer time. Donors sufficiently well-known to attract other donors of similar size and smaller.
My 2 Cents,
