Sure, although I don't have much to announce, glad to hear from everyone
who is interested. Its own mailing list is used to discuss development. The
project is currently useful.

pip install -e git+https://github.com/qwcode/pip#egg=pip

# build wheels for pyramid and all of its dependencies:
pip wheel -w /tmp/wheelbase pyramid

# install pyramid and its dependencies fast, without consulting the network:
pip install --use-wheel --no-index --find-links=/tmp/wheelbase pyramid

If you would like to help, come to python-dev to discuss getting the PEPs
accepted, a pre-requisite for being merged into mainline pip. We seem to
have stalled on the digital signature features but the rest of the design
is non-controversial. There's also the disruptive suggestion to switch away
from - as the separator between filename parts.

The bitbucket repository https://bitbucket.org/dholth/wheel and the
https://crate.io/packages/wheel feature new releases with small
improvements several times a month. The fantastic "pip wheel" command in
qwcode's pip repository https://github.com/qwcode/pip is getting better and
better. Platform tags are honored now, so pip will choose correctly between
versions of a distribution built for windows or Linux, or for Python 2 or
3, depending on your runtime.
