As Dave said, contributions are welcome!

Out of interest, what is the python code you're looking to contribute? The bulk of xapi is written in ocaml, but we do have places in which python fits quite nicely. For example, the API call 'host.call_plugin' calls a script on the specified host, and these scripts, while they can be written in any language, tend to be written in python. There are also the python SM backends which live in /opt/xensource/sm. The repository for these will be available soon, but for now the source is all available in dom0.
