Here is some questions from Daniel Graham (the author of wxRemind), maybe
someone on this list could answer :)

Thanks for the suggestions and the links. I had fooled around with
distutils and nearly went crazy. My experience with setuptools and
easy_install was much more pleasant. I've thus added setup.py to the
package but left INSTALL so there are now three installation
alternatives: './INSTALL', 'python setup.py' and 'easy_install
wxRemind'. All are documented in the README and the home page at:
I've also registered wxRemind at PyPI.
Still, the "egg" is not all that I wished:
1) I could never get the dependencies to work right. Even though
wxPython 220.127.116.11 is registered, easy_install would complain
about not being able to satisfy wxPython>=2.6.1. No problem
satifying Python>=2.3, on the other hand, but easy_install would
then identify 2.4 as 'better' and try to install that. I
ended up dropping both requirements.
2) It is still necessary to download FLOAT and WXREMINDRC since
I couldn't figure out a way to make them accessable in the egg.
If you have suggestions about how to modify my setup.py to fix these
problems or other suggestions, I would be most grateful.
