Pyomo (Python Optimization Modeling Objects package) - another one Python optimization framework, similar to AMPL, has some bindings to OpenOpt
PyAMG - Algebraic Multigrid (AMG) solvers (large-scale linear systems)
CVXOPT - optimization framework for convex problems, Python API, written in C/Python
NLPy - another one Python package for numerical optimization, can read optimization problems coded in the AMPL modeling language
coin-or - lots of free numerical optimization projects, mostly C/C++/Fortran written - Decision Tree for Optimization Software + lots of benchmarks (by Hans D. Mittelmann)

Eric IDE - my favourite Python IDE, even in comparison with commercial ones (BTW it's available in Linux *BUNTU update channels)
Ironclad - an Open Source project started by Resolver Systems. Its aim is to make CPython C Extensions usable from IronPython (first of all numpy and scipy should be mentioned).
