hamster-bus follows the semantic versioning scheme. Each release is packaged and uploaded to
pypi. We provide a compliant
setup.py which contains all the meta
information relevant to users of
hamster-dbus. If you stumble upon any
incompatibilities or dependency issue please let us know. If you are
interested in packaging
hamster-dbus for your preferred distribution or in
some other context we would love to hear from you!
We do fully follow Donald Stuffts argument that information given
setup.py is of fundamentally different nature than what may be located
requirements/*.pip (Additional comments can be found in the
and with Hynek Schlawack).
As far as packaging goes
setup.py is authoritative. We provide a set of
specific environments under
requirements/* that mainly developers and 3rd
parties may find useful. This way we can easily enable contributers to get a
virtualenv running or specify our test environment in one central
location. If for example you wanted to package
debian-stable, it would be mighty convenient to just provide
another requirements.txt with all the relevant dependencies pinned to what your
target distro would provide. Now you can run the entire test suit against a
reliable representation of said target system.
