Thanks to Paul for both his code and his efforts to release this as Open
Source to the community.
As PasswordSafe is released under a different Open Source License than
GPLv2, I've decided not to add it under the main pwsafe project.
Instead, I've set up a public Git repository with the code at
<https://github.com/ronys/pypwsafe> https://github.com/ronys/pypwsafe. I'll
be happy to host any discussion of Paul's project on this mailing list, at
least until the traffic justifies a split into separate lists :-)

Subject: [Passwordsafe-devel] Python Library For Password Safe
A pure-Python library that can read and write Password Safe v3 files has
been released under the GPLv2 by Symantec. Attached is a copy of the latest
I’d like to either host this as a “sub-project” out of the Password Safe
project or create a new SourceForge/Google Code project for this library.
There are a few known issues:
1) HMAC validation fails with some recent versions of Password Safe. I
suspect this is an issue with the support for bug 1812081.
2) Some of the more recent record properties aren’t supported
3) Lack of documentation
I intend to update the library to correct these issues as time allows.
I can be reached with any thoughts, ideas, or concerns via paul at gpmidi
