Assuming you mean "set up a build slave for Python testing"...

Here's what I did.  I was installing on a Tiger machine, which comes
with Python 2.3.5, so the first thing I did was to install Xcode 2.5,
the latest release for Tiger.  I also needed Subversion, so I downloaded
and installed that.  Later versions of OS X Xcode include Subversion, so
you won't need to do it separately if you're using those.

I then installed Python 2.6.5 from python.org, which winds up in
/usr/local/bin, and modified my PATH to put /usr/local/bin on it.  I
downloaded the source bundles for Twisted, zope.interface, and buildbot,
and installed them in that order -- "sudo python setup.py install" works
fine for each of them.

After that, I followed the instructions on the Wiki at
http://wiki.python.org/moin/BuildBot.  Create a buildbot account, make
sure /usr/local/bin is on the PATH of the buildbot account, and issue
the commands shown there.

Yes thanks this is what I was thinking "set up a build slave for Python testing", No reason this would not work on a leopard 10.6 machine?
