This MOTU team cares for [http://www.python.org Python] application and modules packaged in universe.
We care for the numerous packages that use python in universe, chiefly python modules & extensions.
The ruby team has packaged RubyOnRails for Ubuntu, do we also package TurboGears and ["Django"] to let the people have good pythonic alternatives to it? (if RubyOnRails have a special debtag, use it also for these) Yes. Turbogears is packaged as python-turbogears. Django is packaged as python-django.
Most packages come to Ubuntu from Debian. You can (and should) work with Debian to get new packages and Ubuntu fixes into Debian. See the [http://python-modules.alioth.debian.org/ Debian Python Modules] and [http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/PythonAppsPackagingTeam Debian Python Application Packaging] Teams are very open to contributions from Ubuntu. See ContributingToDebian/PythonModulesTeam for details.
