Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2017-12-06 14:44:57 UTC
I was reviewing reverse deps of all gnome-common-python bindings and I saw that this package relies on many of them.

I have tried to reach upstream but it seems its homepage is down. Maybe we could simply treeclean this finally

A substitute  for pyrenamer

I've written a small Python + Tkinter script which can bulk rename files.
One can use full Python's regular expression power for renaming.
This includes the possibility to define a renaming function which can
do very general transformations for file names.

The Tk widget set doesn't look so nice BUT it is immune against major ABI changes in future versions of GTK or QT.

Unfortunately, I don't have a web site to provide this script.

Any comments are welcome,
