There is certainly crossover, but I think it depends on what kind of
focus you took. Are you building a pristine catalog of Python
resources, or a junkyard of Python parts? IMO those two would lead to
different feature sets.
As one example, the pristine catalog should have the option to scrape
your project info from SourceForge or FreshMeat. It should probably
also email contributors every 6 months if they haven't updated their
project records. The junkyard wouldn't do either of those. But it might
provide the storage and downloads cuz when you throw your spare parts
in the 'yard, you don't want any burdens afterwards (like maintaining
your own site to vend the parts).
That's my view anyway. You could try to merge these two visions or even
provide two different "areas" at one major site.
