> Name of contribution: PythonTeX
> Author's name: Geoffrey Poore

> Package version: 0.11
> Location on CTAN: /
> Summary description: Allows Python code entered within a LaTeX
>           document to be executed, and the output to be included in
>           the original document.
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> The PythonTeX package allows you to enter Python code within a LaTeX
> document, execute the code, and access its output in the original
> document.
> PythonTeX provides fast, user-friendly access to Python from within
> LaTeX.  Python code is only executed when it has been modified, or
> when it meets user-specified criteria.  Code may be divided into
> user-defined sessions, which automatically run in parallel.  Errors
> and warnings are synchronized with the LaTeX document, so that they
> refer to the document's line numbers.  External dependencies can be
> tracked, so that code is re-executed when the data it depends on is
> modified.  PythonTeX also provides syntax highlighting for code in
> LaTeX documents via the Pygments syntax highlighter.
> PythonTeX includes a "depythontex" utility that creates a copy of a
> document in which all Python code has been replaced by its output.
> This can be convenient for journal submissions, sharing documents, and
> converting to other formats.

catalogue repository.

i apologise for continuing delays in making announcements.  my health
remains unreliable, and slows me down a lot.
