Hi Chris, David, Fred, Floris, Tarek, PJE, ...
Everybody has been so helpful and I feel that I've now run out
of things to discuss.
I would like to invite everybody to make some sort of contribution
to this, and in return we'll just keep your name as authors of the
What I am trying to accomplish is a shell based install system for
.EGG/Python packages, along with metadata driven installation. TSo
basically getting all the good ideas that *everybody* has had into
a cohesive (and real) collection.
I'm calling for volounteers/co-owners to:
- contribute utilities (say, convert existing setup.py files)
- specify/design/code test cases (different platforms etc)
- write sphinx documentation (rst)
- create examples
The url is:
If we can complete it and have a working system by December, which
I believe we can, we can find a new name and have a democratic vote
on what that might be.
Thank you everybody
