I believe that is the purpose of Python Wheels. https://pythonwheels.com/ pypi is the defecto standard for distributing Python code for use in Python applications. It means packages that use notmuch just need to list it as a dependancy in 'requirements.txt' and a 'pip install -r requirements.txt' will install everything required (if inside a virtualenv no root access required even). There are also various solutions to get automatic deploys to pypi, for example through travis: https://docs.travis-ci.com/user/deployment/pypi/ Unfortunately, I think many people will not even consider using a python library unless it has up-to-date bindings available on pypi. -- Brian May <br...@linuxpenguins.xyz> https://linuxpenguins.xyz/brian/ _______________________________________________ notmuch mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://notmuchmail.org/mailman/listinfo/notmuch
