About us

research & development projects in open-source environments

merlinux is an association of software developers and managers working in research-oriented open source projects. merlinux subcontracts developers and managers internationally. Both core merlinux people and other contractors work from their living place of choice and regularly meet up at conferences or for 3-7 day intense coding meetings, called "sprints". We collaborate through various internet channels, syncing methods and tools.

Many of us are involved in two project areas:

  • PyPy, the next-generation secure, fast and flexible Python Interpreter and VM implementation framework.
  • py.test and tox, popoular Python testing tools, used by companies and developers around the world.

If you need some help or development related to these projects or need consulting with these projects please contact us (holger at merlinux eu) to find about collaboration possibilities.
