there's my little project running on the opensuse build server.

Actually it builds the latest subversion of python under the opt tree using the best 
practices in the field (nearly hands-off approach, integrating unit testing, repeatable etc).


You can get an account and build the modules linking to these builds (automatically and overnight).
