Subject: [gentoo-dev] Python project is looking for a new PyPy maintainer/hacker

Hello, all.

We've been slacking for some time and we're two versions of PyPy behind
already. Therefore, I've opened a staffing need [1] for a new PyPy
package maintainer and hacker.

We specifically need someone who knows the basics of Python ecosystem
and is able to hack on PyPy's code. The work involves:

- checking our existing patchset and updating it for future versions
  of PyPy,

- hacking PyPy to be compatible with common Python install layout
  as outlined in bug #465546 [2],

- updating PyPy ebuilds and building binary packages [3].

We will offer all help we can. We can help with ebuild-related issues
and understanding of Python ecosystem in Gentoo. We can provide
some infrastructure to build PyPy if that is necessary.

However, we don't know the PyPy internals, so that's what the candidate
will need to face alone. Hopefully, it will be just a one-time effort.

If you are interested in helping out, please contact us at
#gentoo-python (freenode) or python@g.o. We appreciate all
the help you can give us.
