Hi Roy,

I think that would be fine, except you will have to come up with a
name that is not "Apache Python Project".  That is essentially a
trademark infringement and I know the Perl community doesn't like
the way we named Perl-Apache either.  Java became Jakarta for the
same reason.

I wondered about the trademark issue.

How is it handled within the ASF if we coin a new name? Do we just come up with a name and hope for the best or does the foundation need to trademark it? For example I see that "Tomcat" and "Apache Tomcat" are trademarked, but I don't see anything for Jakarta.

Any guidance would be appreciated.
