+From: Kirill Simonov <>
+Subject: PyYAML-3.01: Initial Release
+PyYAML: YAML parser and emitter for Python
+YAML is a data serialization format designed for human readability and
+interaction with scripting languages.  PyYAML is a YAML parser and
+emitter for Python.
+PyYAML features a complete YAML 1.1 parser, Unicode support, pickle
+support, capable extension API, and sensible error messages.  PyYAML
+supports standard YAML tags and provides Python-specific tags that allow
+to represent an arbitrary Python object.
+PyYAML is applicable for a broad range of tasks from complex
+configuration files to object serialization and persistance.
+You may download PyYAML from
+>>> import yaml
+>>> yaml.load("""
+... name: PyYAML
+... version: 3.01
+... description: YAML parser and emitter for Python
+... homepage:
+... keywords: [YAML, serialization, configuration, persistance, pickle]
+... """)

+* Initial release.  The version number reflects the codename of the
+  project (PyYAML 3000) and differenciates it from the abandoned PyYaml
+  module.
+The PyYAML module is written by Kirill Simonov <>.
+PyYAML is released under the MIT license.
