* Package name    : python-affinity
  Version         : 0.1.0
  Upstream Author : Enfold Systems, LLC <info@enfoldsystems.com>
* URL             : https://pypi.python.org/pypi/affinity
* License         : MIT (see below)
  Programming Lang: C, Python
  Description     : control process CPU affinity

affinity provides a simple Python module for setting the processor affinity,
i.e. which processors a process is allowed to run on, by wrapping the specific
underlying function calls of each platform. It works on Linux 2.6/3.x and
Windows. Under Linux it provides a Python extension that uses glibc's
sched_getaffinity(2) and sched_setaffinity(2) functions.

Note that while the current version of affinity at PyPi bears no license, I
contacted Enfold Systems and they kindly offered to relicense the code under
the MIT license if I moved it to github.

Thanks for working on packaging affinity for Debian and it looks like an
interestin project, but I have the feeling that description can be improved.
As you package this for Debian it should be pretty obvious that the software
runs on Linux (and specifically on Debian). I do not think that the
information that it works on Linux and Windows is really necessary and you
might want to change your description to reflect that.

Let me know if you want me to review a new description or if you want me to
make suggestions.

Have a great day!
