pyControl on pypi.python.org
we have just recently started to use pyControl in our application, and it works as advertised with no problems so far. We have added pycontrol as a dependency to our application, but that makes it rather difficult to install it, since pyControl is not published at pypi.python.org. Instead, anyone who wishes to install our application has to come to devcentral.f5.com, register an account, find a download page for the right version of pyControl, download it, unpack, fix the setup.py file to actually make it work, copy it to the destination server and install there. That's a lot of work for such a simple application. We considered bundling pyControl to avoid all this hassle and allow for automated installation of our application, but that would deprieve us of any updates and bugfixes. The best solution for us would be to fix the setup.py installtion script and register the package at the Python Package Index, so that it can be automatically downloaded by pip or easy_install. Obviously, this should be done by the original author, if possible, but we are ready to do it by ourselves if you are not interested in doing that.
Any thoughts on that?
