[TIP] State of nose?

Good questions! In general, with 2 small children at home and a
much-reduced ability to work on oss projects during business hours, I
don't have time to do much beyond cheerlead for nose and (in theory)
coordinate patches and releases for nose2.

Kumar McMillan is holding the pumpkin for the 1.1 release of nose,
which is expected to be done as soon as we can work out some
multiprocessing and build-related bugs.

Beyond that, my plan has been to move on to a BSD-licensed nose2
package based on the unittest2 plugins branch. You can see the work
that I've done on that so far here:

But the plugins branch of unittest2 (at least where I have been
pulling from, http://hg.python.org/unittest2/) hasn't been updated in
a while and I don't know what the state or plans are for that, so I'm
not sure exactly what's going to happen with nose2. Last I recall,
Michael was working on a major refactoring of how hooks work, and I've
been waiting for that to land to do any more work on nose2.
