Default Bug#505862: ITP: multiprocessing -- process-based "threading" interface

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Sandro Tosi <morph@debian.org>

* Package name : multiprocessing
Version : 2.6.0-0.1
Upstream Author : R Oudkerk / Python Software Foundation <python-dev@python.org>
* URL : http://code.google.com/p/python-multiprocessing/
* License : BSD
Programming Lang: Python/C
Description : process-based "threading" interface

multiprocessing is a package that supports spawning processes using an API
similar to the threading module. The multiprocessing package offers both local
and remote concurrency, effectively side-stepping the Global Interpreter Lock by
using subprocesses instead of threads. Due to this, the multiprocessing module
allows the programmer to fully leverage multiple processors on a given machine.
It runs on both Unix and Windows.
This is a back port to Python 2.4/2.5 of the multiprocessing package introduced
via PEP-371 and Python 2.6. This is essentially for meta-fork of the original
pyprocessing project found at: http://pyprocessing.berlios.de/ .
