There is a small and still unorganized group of folks who are interested 
in setting up a sandbox instance (and later a real mirror) of the Open 
Library which is written in python and in particular, and a 
platform called infogami.

In particular look at the developer tutorial on the Open Library site. 
It's out of date in re the Open Library but may still represent the 
basics of infogami.

Should those of us interested in this set up a communication 
environment? Or should we use this c4l list for a while, until we find 
we need something else?
