I'm happy to announce the first release of GNU pyconfigure.

GNU pyconfigure is a set of template files for Python developers to use
to easily implement the standard GNU configure/install process for their
packages. The standard GNU process generally consists of two familiar

    $ ./configure --prefix=/usr/
    $ make install

By using the templates provided by GNU pyconfigure, the Python developer
gains the power and flexibility of the time-tested, language-agnostic
GNU installation process, while the user or the software packager
encounters a familiar and convenient interface.

GNU pyconfigure is designed to work either alongside of or in place of
the Python `distutils' module's script.

Version 0.1 of GNU pyconfigure already provides a very useable set-up,
ready to customize and extend, consisting of:

- an Autoconf script, just fill in your project's name and
  version and run autoconf and you'll have a configure script that is
  sufficient for basic Python packages 
- a robust set of powerful Autoconf macros to extend to
  match your project's needs 
- A that provides all of the standard Make targets, surpassing
  what is offered by It also allows you to install to a
  Virtual env rather than to a system directory.
- Template distutils files: and, both required
  for distributing packages on the Python Package Index (PyPI)
