dark saimin bowl with red chopsticks   minimin: modest .INI administration   

minimin is a handful of administrative conventions expressed in INI-style configuration files and implemented using Fabric. Its goal is to help keep administration light, modular, and easy to reason about. minimin is not a configuration management system. It is a way to think about, and ease the pain of, incorporating management components into an existing environment.


sealed envelope   OpenPGP in Python (for entertainment only)   

This package is not intended for real-world security. openpgp.sap, a somewhat acedemic OpenPGP implementation, was an attempt to explore new uses for existing message types by exposing typically obscure aspects of RFC2440. Be aware that RFC2440 is obsolete and the current OpenPGP spec is RFC4880.
