multiprocessing is a back port of the Python 2.6/3.0 multiprocessing
package. The multiprocessing package itself is a renamed and updated version of
R Oudkerk’s pyprocessing package.
This standalone variant is intended to be compatible with Python 2.4 and 2.5,
and will draw it’s fixes/improvements from python-trunk.
This package would not be possible if not for the contributions of not only
the current maintainers but all of the contributors to the original pyprocessing
package listed here
