Without knowing what's in the setup.py that you're trying to convert, I
can't give you any specific advice. py2app ships with several examples
of varying complexity that are installed to:
The list of options py2app will accept is shown when you do "python
setup.py py2app --help". These can be converted into setup.py speak by
replacing the hyphens with underscores and passing them to setup() in
an options dictionary (many of the examples do this).
