New submission from Dave Peterson email@example.com:
It would be convenient to be able to upload pre-built eggs using the 'python setup.py upload' command as the owner/author of a project may not have machines available to cover the platforms for which pre-built binaries are desired. Having this feature would allow the project owner / maintainer to accept pre-built eggs from others in their project community and get them onto PyPi.
I've put together and attached a patch that adds a new '--bdist-path' (or '-b') option to the upload command that allows calls like 'python setup.py upload -b dist/foo-1.0-py2.5-win32.egg' to work.
The patch is actually for the distutils.command.upload module as I've found that in setuptools-0.6c8, even though there is a setuptools/command/upload module, it isn't used at all. I'm assuming this is because there isn't much difference between the setuptools and distutils versions of this command but that something was intended eventually. I'm making this a setuptools ticket because I'd like to see this improvement in setuptools :-)
