#100 fixed Convert existing data on disk to a datapkg distribution rgrp rgrp

Reported by rgrp, 5 years ago.


(2008-10-29) convert existing directory on disk to a datapkg distribution (PythonDistribution? by default). This would be presented in the CLI as a convert command.


  • Add a metadata file (, perhaps prompting for input
  • List all existing data in that directory

Cost: 4h

#101 fixed (Improved) Download support rgrp rgrp

Reported by rgrp, 5 years ago.

  1. Given a url download from that url to disk
  2. Given a package use download url to download to disk

Once on disk should uncompress (if necessary).


  • Should download either to tmp directory (defaulted in config) or a specified path on disk
  • In download would like to support as many types of target urls as possible:
    1. Single files (usually compressed filesets but could be individual files)
    2. Index pages listing files to download
    3. Revision control repositories
    4. ...

This will obviously be a significant amount of work. Suggest:

  1. Start off just supporting the first option.
  2. Have something like a plugin system to handle new target types
  3. Reuse existing work (e.g. easy_install and pip handle standard vcs such as svn, hg, git etc)

Cost: 1d

#102 fixed Switch to using UUIDs for revision ids rgrp rgrp

Reported by rgrp, 5 years ago.


This is better for long term sustainability, especially if we want to "push and pull" from unrelated repositories in the future.


  • May wish to retain a number field updated in the usual incremental way (what's the cost/benefit here?)
