comment Do pip and easy_install download Python packages securely?
Hmmm.. as I feared the safeguards for python developer security are pretty pitiful. Thanks for that tip - imho it's a step forward for some - but I've just got one laptop, and the challenge is mirroring securely. Currently I'm thinking that the most secure way is to check out the projects VCS repository..

Sure, digital signatures won't protect against a backdoor in the package. They would defend against DNS spoofing and hijacking though. And a way to put backdoors into packages is to hack developer machines, e.g. with a trojaned package ;)

Thanks for this info - I think this is definitely on the right track. I've tried the GUI but just feeding the files to it seems to be creating an output with multiple video tracks, not a single video whose length is the sum of all the inputs..
