The new Python C++ SIG is a forum for discussions about the
integration of Python and C++, with an emphasis on the
development of the Boost.Python library
(http://www.boost.org/libs/python/doc/index.html).
Currently, Boost.Python is undergoing a major rewrite to
add powerful new features and to take full advantage of the
new type system introduced in Python 2.2. A detailed
list of the current development goals is posted at:

    http://www.python.org/sigs/c++-sig/

Suggestions regarding the direction of the development work
and contributions in the form of source code should be
posted to this SIG.

About Boost.Python

Boost.Python is a popular open-source tool for interfacing
Python and C++. Boost.Python is built on accessible,
well-maintained, well documented components (the Boost C++
Library), so it does not tie its users to the services of
any one programmer or organization.  Developers worldwide
have contributed significant unsolicited improvements to
the project. The main developer and coordinator of the
library is David Abrahams.

Relation to Boost forums

Boost.Python related issues have also been discussed in the
two Yahoo groups boost at yahoogroups.com and
boost-users at yahoogroups.com (http://groups.yahoo.com/).
Most discussions in these groups are concerned with
advanced C++ library development. The Python SIG is focused
on Python/C++ interfacing.
