From: "Greg Ward" firstname.lastname@example.org
have you been following the saga of patch #449054, part of the PEP 250 implementation. If I understand things correctly, this patch only partly implements PEP 250 -- the rest is waiting on a change to bdist_wininst. What's the status of this change? Going to make it in?
Sure, will do it before 2.2a3. That's Sep 19, right?
Looking at the patch again, it seems sufficient to install into lib/site-packages if sys.version >= 2.2. No fiddling with loading python at runtime, importing distutils.sysconfig, and so on in bdist_wininst.
