    A bug in the automated rights system led to a lot of articles disappearing. Another one for the “transitory nature of the web” file.

    @sonia__harris I don’t know! I can’t even see how to get the Flash embed. Obviously not so smart :/

    Re earlier Q: requires.io watches python projects; gemnasium.com does several languages. via @dracos & @mrchrisadams

    @mrchrisadams @dracos That looks good too, thanks Chris!

    @dracos Ah, it’s working now - must have just needed some time to fetch stuff.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @dracos Yes, I don't understand.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @dracos gemnasium.com/philgyford/pep… github.com/philgyford/pep… - psycopg2 and pylibmc have newer versions on pypi.

    @dracos Maybe I'm missing something… the project I added has a couple of modules with newer versions, but Gemnasium thinks all is well.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @dracos Ooh, ta, that looks like just what I had in mind…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @migurski Me too - but on a long-running project I like to occasionally go and update modules and fix anything that now needs it.

    @MetaGrrrl So long as we can complete more than one historical year per contemporary year, we should get it all done eventually!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @MetaGrrrl Well, obviously. In the past I've pondered a Wikipedia for listing everyone not notable enough to have a Wikipedia entry…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @MetaGrrrl Well thank you, but a few "good" things obviously isn't "notable" :)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @Carfolio Fair enough. I kind of wondered if there was some handy service, that'd also tell you what was new in each update.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @Carfolio Maybe… but what if your project doesn't get built often, and you want to keep it up to date?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @Carfolio I knew someone would say that! :)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    (I mean, more automated than manually typing `pip list --outdated` every so often.)

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Is there an easy way to know when there are updates to python modules you've used on a project? Say, those listed in a requirements.txt?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @alaric You're not the first to suggest this. I'm obviously a natural entwickler. Let me know if you need any wickling, ent or otherwise.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @pixellent I try not to make a big deal of my entwickling. Anyone could do it! You just have to really want it.

    A bit puzzled as to why I've earned a page on the German Wikipedia (which is entirely about Pepys' Diary): de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Gyfo…
