Hi David,

that would seem to fit with the way most other projects work, and should make it easier for anyone looking for the project on github to find it.

I'm happy to help out with the migration and maintenance if it is decided to go ahead with this. The fork I created doesn't have the history from svn, so I think it would be better to start again with the sourceforge project and pull it into git with all the history and then merge in the various changes already in github.

cheers,
Tony

I guess my preferred option would be to create a github organization and host the repo there. So something like github.com/pythonnet/pythonnet. In that case the organization can have multiple owners, so the whole thing is also less dependent on one person.

 

If, on the other hand, one of the original maintainers wanted to host it under their account, I would also understand that, i.e. if this is really someone’s baby.

 

Finally, I guess the official short name is “pythonnet”, right? Or “pythondotnet”, like the mailing list alias?

 

Cheers,

David

So, who is willing to be the primary maintainer of the github repository? I think we should wait for a little while to see if Brian or Barton respond. I see that tiran has a github account as well: https://github.com/tiran

Related to a move to github, I have been in touch with the maintainer of PTVS asking if they are aware of this project.  It seems such a natural fit.

 

He would be happy to:

 

1.       Put a link on our “Related projects” page

2.       Identify some interesting scenarios and do a blog post

3.       Add a dedicated doc page

4.       Etc.

 

Subject to:

 

1.       The project is actively maintained

2.       Up to date docs

3.       It “works”

a.       Reliable & robust

b.      Works with PTVS (eg PTVS doesn’t crash, …)

 

It would be great if PTVS was able to install python .NET for people (the current install process “copy these dll’s” is simple and effective, but a direct install from PTVS would be good.

 

I think we would need to resolve the current situation with the code split between github and sourceforge before we could get the endorsement from PTVS.
