The least I can do is to motivate people ;)

Let me now describe positive side-effects of exposing code in git on
github (instead of SVN on projects.om)

Now anyone of you can 

* clone pythm fork (better off from Dylan's one, although I will
  keep mine also in sync with his)

* do anything you like -- fixes, enhancements, whatever; and regularly
  commit your changes into your local git clone of pythm (nobody will
  see those yet since you would be committing into your local copy)

* if you decide that your changes worth exposing and contributing for
  others to be used, instead of sending patches anywhere, just 

  - get yourself account on github (for our purposes free account is
  - fork Dylan's or mine repository
  - add your fresh fork as an additional remote in your local pythm
  - push your changes into your fork on github

Voilà -- now everyone can see your changes, cherry pick or merge them
into his own repository (like mine or Dylan's).  That really allows to
facilitate community project ;-) and pythm is imho very well worth such
an effort.
