I am interested in getting OWSLIB (http://trac.gispython.org/lab/wiki/OwsLib) included in the OSGEO4W installer.  Is someone willing to do this? Or is someone willing to teach me how to make this contribution?

OWSLIB as described on their site:
OWSLib Makes WxS Suck Less: [Python] Package for programming with OGC(TM) web services. 

Currently OWSLIB is required for one Qgis python plugin I have created but I plan to contribute more. It is also a pretty easy library to use to make calls to and process responses from various OGC type services.

Keep me posted.
