Whoops, the TestGen4Web link on the PyPI page is now fixed.  Thanks for
pointing that out - let me know if you find any other broken links.  And I
added the PyPI link on the project homepage.

Fluncrunner (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/fluncrunner) is an experimental
wrapper for running flunc tests through the web -- experimental meaning it
works, but the docs are probably outdated, it may not be secure and it's
probably inefficient.  I wrote it with dreams of a sort of mini-CMS for
suites of twill scripts: users uploading flunc test suites to automate their
common tasks on the web, webhooks triggering scripts based on the results of
other scripts, stuff like that.  Unfortunately most public websites don't
have stable enough HTML "API"s for this to be useful :( but maybe for narrow
targets it would still be useful.

Feel free to join the mailing list <flunc-dev at lists.coactivate.org> or fork
the github mirror (https://github.com/socialplanning/flunc) - we've never
done much to publicize the project, but it's stable and useful if you're
already sold on using twill scripts for your test suites (which I am).
