An "enum" for Python 3
An unexpected perf feature

A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Seems like our editor have not done his homework right :(, how can you miss "Pardus Project"
 with five  slots...
Distributions in the Summer of Code
Posted May 2, 2008 16:09 UTC (Fri) by dberkholz (subscriber, #23346)
I relied on using names I recognized by eye when scanning through the list on the Summer of
Code site. Unfortunately, both my eyes and my knowledge of distros are fallible -- sorry about
that. I probably also missed any other distros besides Pardus that don't show up in the top 50
Of Pardus' five slots, the split looks like this:
-Package management: 2
-Configuration management: 1
-And the project to add 802.1x to NetworkManager
Another "distribution" worth mentioning is MacPorts, which has four projects all related to
package management. I didn't mention Haiku because all its projects were OS-related, so it
wasn't interesting for the purposes of this article.
