[IPython-dev] Do we have an get_ipython_dir
Wed Sep 3 17:15:31 CDT 2008
I will create a get_ipython_dir function in genutils.
I do want this to go into the 0.9 release as it will enable me to fix
something that we want to get right before we release...
I would like to create a ~/.ipython/security directory to put the furl
files and ssl certificates into. Are people OK with me putting this
in the 0.9 release? I consider this a bug that should be fixed ASAP.
