The sourcecode XML metadata extraction tools are intended to be used for extracting and transforming XML-like markup embedded in source code comments into syntactically correct external entities or well-formed XML files. This can be used for JavaDoc-like code annotation, providing structured comments, or even embedding metadata used by the build process or configuration management tools.
pyNMS is a set of Python modules for network management, network testing, systems management, and general use. It contains a nearly complete implementation of SNMPv2c, a SMI/MIB package, and a MIB "compiler". There are many others, such as a telnet/console access class, XML tools, an IPv4 class, etc. There is, unfortunately, little documentation, and not everything works properly yet, but they work well enough to be useful for many things.
Hep Message Server is software that transfers messages between different messaging systems. Eventually, it should transparently route messages between email, weblogs, and instant messaging. Currently Hep does one thing: fetches news feeds from Web sites and lets you view them in your email client.
The purpose of the Pypect module is to make Python a better glue. It works like Expect, and allows you to start a child application and have your script control it as if a human were typing commands. It is a pure Python module for spawning child applications, controlling them, and responding to expected patterns in their output. It can be used for automating interactive applications such as SSH, FTP, passwd, telnet, etc, to automate setup scripts for duplicating software package installations on different servers, and for automated software testing. It should work on any platform that supports the standard Python PTY module. The interface was designed to be easy to use, so that simple tasks are easy.
python-stablesort is an adaptive, stable, natural mergesort. It is a back-port of the new Python 2.3 stable listsort algorithm to all Python versions (tested with all versions from 1.5.2 to 2.2.3). It can also be regarded as some sort of forward-port in case the default Python list sort() method will change to a non-stable algorithm in the future again.
