Αγαπητοί python-παθούντες,

Ως package maintainer δυο python προγραμμάτων που έχουν dead upstream, θα
ήθελα να ενθαρρύνω όποιους τυχόν ενδιαφέρονται να αναστήσουν το upstream
development. Τα projects είναι:

- archivemail [0,1] is a mail archiving utility, which is quite nicely
  written, has an extensive test-suite, and a decent number of users.  As an
  upstream, you'd start by integreting the debian patches [2], doing the
  py2->3 migration, and implementing user-requested features [3]

- indywiki [4,5] is a wikipedia browser in which navigation is primarily done
  based on images. It's based on an idea by Dr Spinellis, written by Markos
  Gogoulos, with later contributions from me. Markos has published a cool
  article about it in Compuger για όλους [6]. It's a complex piece of code
  that uses pyqt and heavy threading. Unfortunately, it's not nearly as clean
  as I'd like it to be and has no test-suite but there are some dev notes [7].
  As an upstream, you'd start by refactoring it piece by piece, doing the
  py2->3 migration, ideally adding a test-suite, followed eventually by new
  features.

Με συγχωρείτε για τα αγγλικά αλλά θα μου'παιρνε το διπλάσιο χρόνο στα
ελληνικά. Θα χαρώ ν'απαντήσω σε τυχόν απορίες κ γενικά να βοηθήσω αν
χρειαστεί.

Εύγε σ'όσους διάβασαν μέχρι εδώ ;)
Σεραφείμ
