Inclusion Types in this table:

  • Derived components originated from this module but have undergone significant change.
  • Installed components are installed from PyPI/Cargo.
  • Integrated components have their source code (or significant parts of) included in the Opteryx codebase.

This list does not include transitive dependencies nor is guaranteed to be complete. See the dependency graph on GitHub for a more complete view of components used.

Only integrated components have copyright information listed, and best efforts have been made to ensure this information is accurate. However, if the copyright information is crucial for your use-case, we recommend verifying it independently. Should you find any inaccuracies, please raise them as issues for prompt remediation.

Integrated components may differ from their original versions. While we generally do not note cosmetic changes (e.g. PEP8 formatting), any alterations or additions to functionality are documented in the code comments. For derived components, we do not provide individual change notes, as these parts of the codebase have usually undergone substantial modifications, making such annotations less meaningful.
