Hi everyone,

First off, thanks for your work on notmuch2, Floris!

Just to clarify: alot does not, and will not, depend on packages being on PyPI
and is not intended to be installed through pip. I simply don't want to provide
support for this.

This said, I don't think it is difficult to automate pypi uploads and it cannot
hurt to have an "official" release up there instead of several unmaintained
corpses over the years.
