The Python type system SIG

<H3>The Python type system SIG</H3>

<p>This list has been created for discussions on issues related to Python's type system.

<p>Recently, the types SIG has come under attack for inactivity, and in response Paul Prescod has offered to guide the SIG towards accomplishing a single specific goal: to develop an optional static typing system for Python. The <a href="" >December 1999 archives</a> of the SIG show the discussion that lead to this decision.
