    Is there a public repository for pywinauto source code? I don't see any links in the sourceforge interface.

    Hi Jeff,

    Not clear to me how public it is (though I think you should be able to checkout easily) from

    The web presence of pywinauto is unbelievably scattered :(
    Dead wiki at:
    Partially dead blog at (though I am trying to revive it :)
    Some stuff here on SourceForge
    Some Stuff on OpenQA (just code and forums)

    Things I would like to do if I had the energy:
    a) move to Mercurial
    b) move everything to google code (find it simpler than source forge)
    c) create a google group for the mailing list
    d) be left with 3 sites: (blog, groups, google code site)

    Anyway - that was a long answer to a short question :)

    Hello, Mark. I have some spare time now and I can help with a), b) and c). I'd like also to contribute some modifications we are using here.

    Moving to Mercurial is easy (I have since done that using hgsubversion plugin for mercurial.
    I have just set up a google project

    I am doing a test conversion right now (then I need to see how to push the cloned SVN repo to Google code).

    It is bed time here - so I will let the hgsubversion checkout continue overnight (still on r1 :) ).

    Before I give check-in privileges to anybody - I would like to accept a patch or two manually first.

    I did it :) I migrated from SVN to Mercurial.

    It took as long as it did - because I wanted to remove a ton of cruft from the history (checked in pyc, dlls etc early on).

    I reduced the repo from 300+ mb down to 1.7 Mb :). That should make for nicer clones :)

    feel free to grab the code from:

    hg clone pywinauto

    However, I cannot find them anymore….?
