Jim Hugunin invented JPython and was the primary developer while
he was at CNRI. In February 1999, Jim left CNRI for sunny
California and Barry Warsaw became the primary maintainer.
When Barry and the rest of PythonLabs left CNRI, Barry renamed
JPython to Jython, put the sources on SourceForge and made
Finn Bock the primary maintainer.
Python's inventor Guido van Rossum and the rest of PythonLabs
continues to help and support Jython by their understanding
of how Jython must live with the limits of Java.
You can contact the Jython maintainers directly via
email@example.com, or the Jython community at
