In the never ending quest to get Python something like Perl’s convenient package registries and utilities, PEP 301: Package Index and Metadata for Distutils, by Richard Jones is the likely foundation. Richard has now produced a patch (announced by Andrew Kuchling) to Python with a preliminary implementation of PEP 301. WIth this patch (available in current Python CVS) developers can upload registry information specified through distutils. He also posted a preliminary registry of Python packages, which I expect will grow rapidly once Python 2.3 emerges with the PEP 301 code included. In fact, Richard and Andrew would love to see feedback from people who are willing to try Python CVS, or at least after Python 2.3a2 comes out with the patches included. The patch adds new “register” command for distutils which allows a package to be registered with a catalog.
