Taking over maintenance of an existing open source application can be a scary prospect yet exciting and fun at the same time. I want to talk a little bit about how I ended up taking over maintenance of WebOb a Python HTTP request/response library that is used heavily by a huge variety of projects.

An overview of what I will cover:

° About me
° Taking over maintenance for WebOb
° What WebOb is
° Who uses it, and why it is important
° Backwards compatibility…?
° Where do you go from here?
° Questions!!!
