I'm forwarding this post from python(x,y) list so anyone with
expertise with deployment tools can comment to them
(to contact at pythonxy.com or their entire list pythonxy at googlegroups.com ).
FYI python(x,y) is a nicely packaged distribution of
Python + Eclipse + scientific + plotting packages + MinGW.
Currently only for Windows but Linux may be coming.
And the maintainer gives a very fast turnaround, is very responsive
to suggestions, and constantly revises updates on the individual
subpackages. A big two thumbs up.
