Release of GNU pyconfigure 0.1.1

Item posted by Brandon Invergo <brandon> on Wed 09 Jan 2013 09:56:08 PM UTC.

I am pleased to announce the release of GNU pyconfigure 0.1.1.

GNU pyconfigure is a set of template files for Python developers to use
to easily implement the standard GNU configure/install process for their
packages. The standard GNU process generally consists of two familiar

    $ ./configure --prefix=/usr/
    $ make install

By using the templates provided by GNU pyconfigure, the Python developer
gains the power and flexibility of the time-tested, language-agnostic
GNU installation process, while the user or the software packager
encounters a familiar and convenient interface.

GNU pyconfigure is designed to work either alongside of or in place of
the Python `distutils' module's script. Thus, if your project
already has a script, pyconfigure can simply wrap its
functionality, leveraging the work you have already done.

Version 0.1.1 NEWS

This is a bugfix/cleanup release, correcting several problems with
version 0.1

There was a bug in the Python Autoconf macros which produced empty
files. This has been corrected.

Previously, pre-generated files were included in the src
directory. This has been cleaned up in favor of the developer
generating them him or herself.

The `' script can be executed in place of `autoreconf'
(so the developer need not know about `autoreconf').
