Project Description

The libkdumpfile library includes Python bindings. They are implemented as manually created C code for CPython. This is hard to maintain and/or port to alternative Python implementations.

Additionally, the whole project uses GNU autotools, which do not integrate well with Python packaging. There is currently a hack for distutils, but since distutils is going to be deprecated, a different solution is needed.

Goal for this Hackweek

The plan for this Hackweek is to rewrite them from scratch using the Python cffi package and distribute as a separate package (pykdumpfile ?).

Resources

Looking for hackers with the skills:

python kdump

This project is part of:
