Dear (Py)OSG community,
It seems an appropriate time to 'resurrect' PyOSG, although perhaps a
couple days too early. :) I've made a new home for it at:
Thanks to those who have helped me over the last few days get PyOSG up
and running (Gerwin de Haan and Paul Melis).
The following is the webpage you will see if you click the link above.
* There seems to be continuing desire for a Python binding for
* An apparent lack of care and feeding of both the website and
source code at SourceForge site
* Only sporadic access to what is apparently the developer's
personal svn repository with no URL published I could find (except
on mailing lists)
* Two apparently active branches of PyOSG diverging, one by the
original PyOSG author Gideon May, and one by Joeseph Winston &
* My personal plan to continue using PyOSG
I have gathered the latest PyOSG sources I could find and begun a new,
publicly accessible subversion repository here. This was done primarily
so that PyOSG could have a more-or-less 'official' URL that gives some
indication this is a viable project and that the latest source code can
be found in one place. Another goal is to unify the diverging trees.
I thank all previous coders and contributors to PyOSG, particularly
Gideon May, who I believe has done the vast majority of the work in
creating PyOSG. I believe the source code is licensed under the BSD
license, and any contributions I make will be under this BSD license.
As I am not able to devote much time to maintaining PyOSG, I ask the
community for any and all help with this site and the source -- I will
happily grant commit access to either if to anyone with more than a
We have a subversion repository online. There are two branches you may
be interested in:
* 'trunk' - The latest from Gideon May, the original author of
* 'billhart' - The latest from Bill Hart and Joeseph Winston:
It is my hope that we can unify these two sources, which have appartenly
diverged some time ago.
The releases are at http://mosca.caltech.edu/pyosg_downloads :
first release made here, built from 'trunk' revision 5, builds
with standard python distutils, only tested on linux
