Google Summer of Code -- Python Dependency Resolution

2017-05-22 · Posted by: Justin Cappos · Categories: TUF · Comments

This summer we are giving back to the Python community. I am excited to be working with Donald Stufft to mentor Pradyun Gedam, while he works on dependency resolution for pip.
This should help Python users install packages in situations where there are conflicts between dependencies of different packages.

Pradyun will doing this research work under the aegis of the Google Summer of Code program. GSoC, as it is more commonly known, gives college student programmers the opportunity to gain practical experience in open source development, while receiving a stipend for their efforts. Pradyun will be one of 1,318 GSoC students who will spend the summer working at one of 201 mentoring organizations around the world.

Let the fun begin!
