Updated version on Github, and the egg should work now.

Aha. I should probably rename build.sh to release.sh - it's the script I use for publishing new releases to PyPI. I'll write a README or something too... anyway, it should just work, from Github, out-of-the-box without running the script. If it doesn't, let me know! :)

comment Non-verbatim search strings in py-stackexchange
You might find, now that version 1.1 of the API has been released, that the /similar method might suit your needs (api.stackoverflow.com/1.1/usage/methods/similar). You can access this in Py-StackExchange with the site.similar() method; just remember to update the library to a recent version.

Thanks! I really should have tested that... thanks again, though. I'll incorporate that just now. :)

Do you think they'd mind if we went on Area 51 to do this?

comment Can we have a test user account?
I agree that not having a test area can be a bit annoying. What would be quite neat is a spam.stackexchange.com which is not search engine-indexed, unmoderated, and possibly wiped every so often, for test purposes. Of course, that'll never happen, but... :)

It's not rare any more with SE 2.0 with sites coming out of private beta.

Note to anyone who has this followed (answered/favourited/etc.): the API version number has been changed to 1.0 and so the latest revision will not work until said version is deployed. Grab the 0.9 branch if you need the code urgently. That is all.

comment Stack2Blog - Turning your answers into blogs (For “sale”)
Just to say - from your code, you could use StackAuth to query site information rather than hard-coding the site list, especially now that the Gaming SE has entered private beta, with more coming soon it seems! :)

@George: Perhaps integration with source repos? :) Like displaying latest commit(s), etc. That would be useful - more of a centralised page. (Or, if you wanted to take it in that direction, some sort of basic Wiki-like feature; although another project forge is probably reinventing the wheel.)

I was thinking about that when I accidentally requested page 2 of what I expected to be a multi-page list (it was only 14 items!). Some distinction could be useful...
