Description:

I own and maintain few of Python open source modules. One of them being PyEZ (Python library to remotely manage/automate Junos networking devices)

https://github.com/Juniper/py-junos-eznc

It's just not the initial coding which makes a module useful. There is a lot of effort which goes after the module is made open source.

Licence, example, CI/CD, blogs, videos, GitHub stars are some of the things which can help in adoption of the module.

Would like to talk about how to drive a package to a be successful.
