Hello everyone,

i'm student and i need some informations about the Google Summer Of Code Project : Pypi Testing Infrastructure. For those unfamiliar with the project, it consists in these 4 simple actions :
1 - get package from pypi.
2 - install the package.
3 - run package tests 
4 - build a report.

In order to match with community's needs, we need some informations about several subjects. For each subject, i've created a google moderator serie.

1) General questions about packaging and project : http://www.google.com/moderator/#16/e=62dc1
2) For each pypi package, we build a report with several indicators, which indicators did you want to see on report ? http://www.google.com/moderator/#16/e=5f6e4
3) In order to install the package and run tests, we need to list external dependencies (like db, non easy-installable library, ...) : http://www.google.com/moderator/#16/e=6237a
4) Finally, we need to choose a Continuous Integration Tool for the project. We need some informations about which CI tools did you use for your python project : http://www.google.com/moderator/#16/e=62316

I've got an idea which require your approval, i've think if a message was displayed on pypi website like this one : "Pypi need you ! We need your help to improve a future tool" and explain what i've explain just before. Thus we could have maximum contributions. Some of my contacts said that this is a bad idea, but I wanted to propose the idea.

Thanks for your contributions.
