Django People is back!

A while back, Simon Willison created Django People, an index of Django users around the world. It was a cool resource showing the spread of the community — there are even Django users in Antarctica!

Unfortunately, the site went down, and it's been missing for a bit. Well, I'm pleased to announce today that Django People is back! Many thanks to Bruno Renié who led the team that updated the code and got the site back online. All your old accounts are still in place; check it out.

You'll notice a new URL: people.djangoproject.com. This is because the site's now being supported by the DSF; this'll help make sure it doesn't go away again. Hosting's been graciously provided by Heroku, who have donated a bunch of server credits to the DSF -- thanks!

This is just the beginning: we're hoping to sponsor and host other important community sites as needed. So, if you run something of service to the Django community and need some assistance getting or keeping it online: get in touch.

Once again, thanks for the hosting, Heroku, and thanks to everyone who contributed!
