How to correctly distribute a Lucene index.
Another Lucene-based web service tool (this one based on Plone)

These guys have some interesting ideas about Python Packaging.
Some notes from various PyCon sessions.
A tool to review an svn repository with new files/conflicts and quickly decide what to do with them. Pretty nifty.

Ping's page on his voting research. Some hackers hack code, others hack democracy.
