Python Question

Biggest python projects

What is the biggest software development team that uses Python? I am wondering how well the dynamic type system scales to large development teams.

It's pretty clear that at Google they have C++ and Java codebases with thousands of developers; their use of Python is much smaller.

Are there some huge companies that develop primarily in Python?


Youtube is probably the biggest user after Google (and subsequently bought by them).

Reddit, a digg-like website, is written in Python.

Eve, an MMO with a good chunk written in Python is pretty impressive as well.
