intent to package: htmlgen and some python modules

I intend to package HTMLgen and some python modules.
Together with the python modules I intend to package some packages
needed by the Python modules (Gist, Narcisse and PACT/PDB).


HTMLgen is a class library for the generation of HTML documents with
Python scripts. It's used when you want to create HTML pages
containing information which changes from time to time. For example
you might want to have a page which provides an overall system summary
of data collected nightly. Or maybe you have a catalog of data and
images that you would like formed into a spiffy set of web pages for
the world to browse. Python is a great scripting language for these
tasks and with HTMLgen it's very straightforward to construct objects
which are rendered into consistently structured web pages. Of course,
CGI scripts written in Python can take advantage of these classes as


The Python Imaging Library adds an image object to your
Python interpreter. You can load image objects from a variety of file
formats, and apply a rich set of image operations to them.

Image Objects
- Bilevel, greyscale, palette, true colour (RGB), true colour with
  transparency (RGBA),
- colour separation (CMYK). 
- Copy, cut, paste operations. 
- Flip, transpose, resize, rotate, and arbitrary affine transforms. 
- Transparency operations. 
- Channel and point operations. 
- Colour transforms, including matrix operations. 
- Image enhancement, including convolution filters. 

File Formats

- Full (Open/Load/Save): BMP, EPS (with ghostscript), GIF, IM, JPEG,
- Read only (Open/Load): CUR, DCX, FLI, FLC, GBR, GD, ICO, IMT,
- Save only: PDF, EPS (without ghostscript). 

Uses the IJG JPEG library to load and save JPEG files, and the ZLIB
library to load and save PNG and ARG files. All other formats are
supported by the standard distribution.

python-graphics -- enables use of Gist and Narcisse from Python
python-pdb -- provides an interface to PACT/PDB database files
python-history -- collects time history data from Python-steered
  simulations an d stores it in a variety of formats such as text and
python-rng -- makes various random number distributions accessible from Python.
