Python svn builds (http://pyvm.sourceforge.net) is a project to provide python binary builds ready to use.
The main features for these builds are:
+ install under /opt/opt-python-svnXXXXX-2.7a0 (XXXXX is the svn revision) + multiple interpreters can be installed side by side + installed in parallel to the system python (administrator friendly) + they're build for several different platforms (rpm based) + the build host is provided by the OpenSUSE buildserver + the builds can be deployed using yum/yast/urpmi (OpenSUSE buildserver) + each build runs a small smoke test and it is unattented + the test results are reported
The aim is:
+ implementing a continuous integration practice + to provide python developer with reliable and repeatable builds + modules developer can test their modules against the latest python
News for this version:
Few modules (imaging, numpy, pexpect and setuptools) have been added and they're build for each intepreter. These are still in testing but the aim here is to have a full complete build chain with a test suite (next step is providing a test driven development).
