Near future goals:

  • Automated testing suite. Due to the nature of shrinkwrap, this will require the testing framework to repeatedly create and destroy entire virtualenvs for each test, which requires some non-trivial infrastructure coding.
  • SHA1 hash checking of downloaded tar files.
  • An interface for shrinkwrap packages to test and report whether the wrapped software is already installed system-wide. This would allow a shrinkwrap package to optionally skip a lengthy compile and install step when the appropriate system packages are already present.

Far future goals:

  • Remove all installed files when pip uninstall is called. This will require detecting and recording all the files added to the virtualenv by the installer() function.
