Ideally: create a complete standard SIS package for regular users, and update it easily.
Symbian might have got a big kick recently, it will stay as a big player for few years.

I had long time back a look at PyS60 and the packaging process looks not so easy, any help would be warmly welcome. So my questions:
- A standard setup.py is good with Symbian, or additional effort is required?
- Non pure Python packages: additional effort for getting C cross compiled (eg Twisted)?
- Any chance for getting non-C software (CouchDB:Erlang) included in the package or as dependency?
- Did you get help from the guys at OVI (eg package signing, general support)? If yes, any pointer to good people there?
- Most importantly, an overall estimate of the effort, in man*day?
