I just pushed Donald's final round of edits in response to the feedback on the last PEP 440 thread, and as such I'm happy to announce that I am accepting PEP 440 as the recommended approach to identifying versions and specifying dependencies when distributing Python software.
The PEP is available in the usual place at http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0440/
It's been a long road to get to an implementation independent versioning standard that has a feasible migration path from the current pkg_resources defined de facto standard, and I'd like to thank a few folks:
- Donald Stufft for his extensive work on PEP 440 itself, especially
the proof of concept integration into pip
- Vinay Sajip for his efforts in validating earlier versions of the PEP
- Tarek Ziadé for starting us down the road to an implementation
independent versioning standard with the initial creation of PEP 386 back in June 2009, more than five years ago!
