- document with sphinx
- write unittests (I know... I should have written them 1st..)
- make a deb or rpm
- make a windows executable
- convert to python 3 with 2to3 etc..
Rather than risk breaking my main codebase however, I believe it always helps to attempt this stuff with a smaller application first I think. So I've written one. It is trivial enough to keep the codebase simple, but complex enough to be realistic.
It raises dialogs, stores data, etc.
I've tried to follow a lot of my coding style choices (which you may hate), but on checking the modules with pylint, most get a 10/10, only decreasing when PyQt4 own naming conventions dictate.
anyways, to cut to the chase.. the code is here is anyone wants a play. This is in the public domain, so do with it as you wish.

My current focus is writing unittests (something I am ashamed to admit I have never done before), and it is proving VERY interesting.
for example. dialogs are interesting, in that the exec_ function needs to be called to ensure correct code coverage. Calling that during a test run causes a pause in the procedings.. not good.
So what is the best way to call accept() or reject() on such a dialog?
I am experimenting with installEventFilter into QApplication itself, and accepting the dialog when the focus event is encountered seems to be working really well.
