I'm happy to announce that an initial 0.1.0 version of Python Buildutils
The `buildutils` package contains extensions to Python's standard
distribution utilities (`distutils`) that are often useful during the
development of Python projects.
Buildutils was created to scratch an itch: removing ``make`` from the
Python development process and partially to gain a better understanding
of how `distutils` works.
The following extension commands are included:
send a release announcement to mailing lists
like python-announce-list at python.org
generate MD5 and SHA-1 checksum files for distributables.
generate an TAGS file over all packages and module (for use in
find lint using the pyflakes utility.
dumps information about the project.
push distributables and documentation up to a project site using
build Python documentation from restructured text documents and
Python doc strings.
run py.test unit tests.
dump statistics on the number of lines, files, modules, packages,
bring in a working version of a dependency (uses setuptools egg
