Bug#322168: RFP: pyme -- Python interface to the GPGME GnuPG encryption library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : pyme
  Version         : 0.7.0
  Upstream Author : Igor Belyi <belyi.users.sourceforge.net>
* URL             : http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyme/
* License         : LGPL
  Description     : Python interface to the GPGME GnuPG encryption library

 Pyme is, for the most part, a direct interface to the C GPGME
 library.  However, it is re-packaged in a more Pythonic way --
 object-oriented with classes and modules.  Take a look at the classes
 defined here -- they correspond directly to certain object types in GPGME
 for C.
   * Feature-rich, full implementation of the GPGME library.  Supports
     all GPGME features except interactive editing (coming soon).
     Callback functions may be written in pure Python.
   * Ability to sign, encrypt, decrypt, and verify data.
   * Ability to list keys, export and import keys, and manage the keyring.
   * Fully object-oriented with convenient classes and modules.


This package was shipped with Debian from 2002-11 (see Bug #169807) till
2003-10 (see Bug #213124).  It now is again being maintained upstream.

Preliminary packages are available from the upstream site (upstream
does ship a debian/ directory in the tarball) as well as from the
apt-able archive at

 deb[-src] http://non-gnu.uvt.nl/debian sarge pyme

.  Beware!  These packages are still pretty rough on the edges!  The
package on non-gnu.uvt.nl will likely get updated soonish.

Upstream is responsive and cooperative.

It is rumoured Ubuntu is preparing a package too.  (I couldn't find any
published stuff yet, though.)
