pyxattr
=======

This is the pyxattr module, a Python extension module which gives access
to the extended attributes for filesystem objects available in some
operating systems.

Downloads: go to http://pyxattr.k1024.org/downloads/. Latest
version is 0.5.3. The source repository is either at
http://git.k1024.org/pyxattr.git or at
https://github.com/iustin/pyxattr.

Requirements
------------

pyxattr has been written and tested on Linux, kernel v2.4 or later, with
XFS filesystems; ext2/ext3 should work also. If any other platform
implements the same behavior, pyxattr could be used.

You need to have the attr library (including development headers; most
distributions should have this, under various names) and setuptools
installed in order to build and install the module.

Note that previous versions had different licenses: version 0.3 was licensed
under LGPL version 3 (which, I realized later, is not compatible with GPLv2,
hence the change to LGPL 2.1), and even older versions were licensed under GPL
