I'm neck-deep in writing my thesis, so I completely forgot to write about this, but a couple weeks ago I released a bugfix version of GNU pyconfigure, version 0.2.1. pyconfigure consists of templates for Autoconf and Make for simplifying the process of packaging Python programs in a GNU standards-compliant manner. You can read the full release announcement on Savannah.
The day after I made the release, I gave a presentation on pyconfigure at the GNU Hackers Meeting in Paris. A video recording of my talk has been made available. There were some very interesting talks at the meeting so I recommend checking out some of the other videos!
