I'm trying to write a python binding to be used in the next future of
gtkpacman. By now i've implemented just alpm_db* (with a Database
class), alpm_pkg* (with a Package class) and alpm_option* (with an
Alpm class). If anyone wants to take a look it's on berlios.de, project
pyalpm (you'll need pyrex to compile the module). Of course is
totally not documented :). Any help in the project would be very
appreciated, so if anyone is intersted feel free to contact me ;)


P.S.: a minimal example of usage is

>>> from alpm import Alpm
>>> pm = Alpm()

and then do what you want with the pm object methods :)
