The older versions of the LLNL distribution, including the Gist module,
continue to be available at ftp-icf.llnl.gov:/pub/python.

There haven't been any updates to Gist in well over a year.  We (Zane
Motteler and I) have zero local customers for it, and a multitude of
other programmatic responsibilities.  We realize that it would be nice
simply to dis-entangle Gist from the old distribution and make it
available as a separate Python package, perhaps using Distutils, or
not, or as an RPM, or as an SRPM, or as a Debian package.  There is no
time and no support for this activity.  If you the reader would like to
undertake the project, you have our blessing.
