Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Kconfiglib: a flexible Python Kconfig parser and library -
 now on GitHub


Kconfiglib is a flexible Python Kconfig parser and library, first introduced in I have updated it for Linux 3.7.0 and put
it on GitHub at, making some
improvements in the process:

 - The installation has been simplified. No need to copy anything anywhere now,
   and just a trivial single-block Makefile patch to apply. (The patch adds a
   few convenient make targets that also help us pick up ARCH, SRCARCH, and
   KERNELVERSION from the environment.)

 - The API has been cleaned up and made more consistent by renaming a few

 - The entire API is now covered by an extensive suite of selftests in addition
   to the automatic compatibility tests.

The only failures in the test suite as of 3.7.0 (848b81415c42ff) are due to a
bug that makes scripts/kconfig/conf generate an incorrect configuration for
some Blackfin defconfigs ( This causes
failures in the Kconfiglib test suite since it automatically compares the
output from Kconfiglib with that from scripts/kconfig/conf and Kconfiglib does
not have the same bug.

Note: I do not have plans to get this into the kernel.
