- I can't do anything about bdist_wininst. I hope Thomas is listening,
can offer some help here :-)
I am, and I bdist_wininst *will* be ready when the rest is complete.
I already have a version which retrieves sys.extinstallpath at run time.
Great! Thanks for that. In recent messages, I've reached the point where I can no longer see much use for sys.extinstallpath, unless the scope is extended to Unix and Mac. In the absence of a suitable Unix/Mac expert, that's not likely to happen...
Would you be willing to change to os.path.join(sys.prefix, "lib", "site-packages") (as this is windows-specific, just sys.prefix + "\lib\site-packages" would be fine)? Alternatively, I could expose sys.extinstallpath from site.py solely for NT - I don't mind either way.
I already posted the link to access Python's cvs repository via http. (Can easily be found starting at http://python.sourceforge.net/). This is implemented via Greg Stein's ViewCVS - check it out, it is very powerful!
I *thought* you had, but I couldn't find the message. Sorry - I'll have a look later on.
Sorry - must rush now - hope this mail makes sense... Paul.
