Let me do a recap with application analogies:
You want a combination of
- github / bitbucket for source management *et ce terra*
- http://readthedocs.org/ for documentation and search
- http://nullege.com for code search
- http://repos.io/ for the social features
I think it's not enough for fully integrated project management solution, I
will add this features:
- Paragraph level and document level comments for documentation like
- Matrix comparaisons : grid feature of http://djangopackages.com/
- Dependency tracking, library usage in a nice visual way
- Ask for review thingy
- Buildbot et all
- Q/A system
- Mailling lis
- Agenda because time lapse
- Blogs because it's all the rage
- CLI interface so that hipsters can hypergrep all the way
- A big fat red button to promote good libraries into the standard lib
- A specialized reader UI for hypernerds so that they can cope with that
much information while still pretending to be human
And when the Python WAR-like format is done, automatic deployement of web
application on the Python.org cloud powered by machines using a pure Python
implemention of the HURD on top a green chips running PyPy.
