Automated shipping of open-source project releases.

shipper is a power distribution tool for developers with multiple projects who do frequent releases. It automates the tedious process of shipping a software release and (if desired) templating a project web page. It can deliver releases in correct form to SourceForge, Berlios, and Savannah, and knows how to post a release announcement via freecode-submit.
