handover: "pip install retroforth"

I am looking to maintain two "downstream" distros of retroforth: 【🌈RAINBOW4TH】& 【🐬DOLPHIN RETROFORTH


As part of this I claimed the retroforth and rainbow4th names to use with the python pip + pypi.org package manager.

I would like to hand over the retroforth name to Charles & Arland so new users can install and use the official release with:

pip install retroforth

It will also allow a line to be added to requirments.txt to install it as a dependency such as:

retroforth >= 2021.1.0

I will create a new package dolphin-retroforth or similar if I need to.

Using the package manager means you can install the python app on android/ios and request the package via pip and it all just works.

I am also happy to continue being an owner on pypi.org and maintain the package if neeed.

The next step would be to setup an account with multi-factor auth on pypi.org and let me know the email so I can add another owner.

I've registered an account on pypi.org under crc@retroforth.org

Ah; it seems I need your pypi.org username, not email to invite you.

Ok, user name is crc

We've created a package for this, but haven't tested uploading it to pypi.org or installing it yet. I'll be trying to do so over the weekend.

The files are at:

Assuming this works, I'll be adding a Makefile.python target to do the amalgamation and update the package.

Uploaded a 2021.1 package and added Makefile targets to use in the future.
