Not many, to be honest :-( - bash scripts, JavaScript and a little Perl. 
That's why I thought the O'Reilly book would be my best choice (Python 
from scratch). I'll try to get my hands on a 2nd hand version. It's just 
that I want to support publishers like O'Reilly who take the heart to 
print so many excellent books on FOSS by buying their products.

Probably, we can throw all our experiences together as soon as 1.4 is 
out and hand them over to Holger for his updated book.

Thank you all for your advice
