Default Bug#637109: ITP: pycaptcha -- collection of Python modules implementing CAPTCHAs

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Olivier Sallou <olivier.sallou@irisa.fr>

* Package name : pycaptcha
Version : 2.4
Upstream Author : Micah Dowty <micah at navi cx>
* URL : http://pypi.python.org/pypi/PyCAPTCHA/0.4
* License : MIT
Programming Lang: Python
Description : collection of Python modules implementing CAPTCHAs

This is the PyCAPTCHA package, a collection of Python modules
implementing CAPTCHAs: automated tests that humans should pass,
but current computer programs can't. These tests are often
used for security.

See http://www.captcha.net for more information and examples.

This project was started because the CIA project, written in
Python, needed a CAPTCHA to automate its user creation process
safely. All existing implementations the author could find were
written in Java or for the .NET framework, so a simple Python
alternative was needed.


Included are several example programs:

- simple_example.py is a bare-bones example that just generates
and displays an image.

- http_example.py is a longer example that uses BaseHTTPServer
to simulate a CAPTCHA's use in a web environment. Running this
example and connecting to it from your web browser is a quick
and easy way to see PyCAPTCHA in action

- modpython_example.py is a version of http_example that runs
from an Apache server equipped with a properly configured


- Python 2.2.1 or later
- the Python Imaging Library, required for visual CAPTCHAs
