[Moin-user] Fun python project (svgchart) free to a good home

Hi all,

I started working on a python program to produce charts
from python data, directly in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics)
format.  I'm hoping to use this in the CELF test lab for
some of the results presentation, but it could be made into
a very useful general purpose tool, IMHO.  We're currently
using pygdchart for this in the lab, but it has drawbacks.

Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to finish the program.
If you want to work on this VERY FUN project, please let me
know.  I think that you will find it a very entertaining and
educational experience.  It would make for a great couple
of hours of hobby programming over Thanksgiving!!

Please see
for details, and let me know if you are interested.

I've posted this same notice to the celinux-dev mailing
list. The reason I'm posting this to a MoinMoin list also
is that I know that MoinMoin uses pygdchart to produce
its stats pages.  I believe a large number of MoinMoin
sites don't ever turn this feature on, because of the
dependency on gdchart.  A standalone charting module
written purely in python would make the stats feature more
accessible to users of MoinMoin.  So I thought someone
here might be interested.
