Bug#322168: RFP: pyme -- Python interface to the GPGME GnuPG encryption library
* Package name : pyme
Version : 0.7.0

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
* 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.)
