Per suggestions posted on this mailing list I created a sourceforge project (config-py), registered it with PyPi and submitted the following announcement to python-announce.
I look forward to your feedback.
Thanks, Dan Gass
config-py version 1.0 has been released and is available at SourceForge. This is the initial release of a Python module for reading python based user configuration files to control script execution. (It is a more powerful alternative to Python's ConfigParser module). The long term goal is to refine this module for eventual inclusion in the standard Python distribution.
Module Description ------------------
This python module provides a simple, but extremely flexible and powerful method of controlling python script execution by use of configuration settings stored in user configuration files. This module is a more powerful alternative to the ConfigParser module already available in the standard Python distribution.
The standard ConfigParser module parses text based user configuration files and provides access to that information. This module reads python based configuration files and provides access to the python objects contained within. In addition, this module supports hierarchical organization of the settings within the configuration files so that settings may be accessed using keys specified by the user from the command line or by other means. By use of python based configuration files, this module provides a simple solution to most configuration problems but also has the flexibility to solve the most complex configuration issues.
