Dulwich is a Python implementation of the Git file formats and protocols, which does not depend on Git itself.
All functionality is available in pure Python. Optional C extensions can be built for improved performance.
Dulwich takes its name from the area in London where the friendly Mr. and Mrs. Git once attended a cocktail party.
Supported Python versions are 2.7, 3.4 and 3.5.

Bug reports can be filed on the project page on GitHub
There are two mailing lists for Dulwich, a discussion list and an announce list.
There is a #dulwich IRC channel on irc.freenode.net.
