I'm not certain what the mailing list policy is regarding soliciting for
potential commercial work, but in an effort to be constructive I think its
best for you to be aware that it's uncommon for most developers to take on
projects of the size you're describing (high availability, dba,
multilingual via Flask-Babel, etc) for equity alone. These projects are
typically completed either by dedicated teams if there is sufficient up
front capital or by third-party development firms with fixed deliverable
You might want to check out incubator sites like builditwith.me in an
effort to find developers with the available time/willingness to work for
equity. Mailing lists like this are more commonly used for development and
implementation questions, I think.
Best of luck with your project!
