Hey guys,

I am trying to publish some binaries with Wheel for the first time.

Building PySide with

    python bidst_wheel

I would like how the OS version is determined, or even more, how this is

Without any argument, when building PySide, I get two different

For some reason, one python is supported by Mavericks and one is not.
Also, I am confused by the different output from the two.

I would like to be able to control this and say where the stuff should
run. I also cannot figure out how mandatory these strings are.
Is a version enforced? Is it recommended?
What will PyPi say?

And how do I see which version PyPi use when I """pip install xxx" ?

How do I define that? Did not find that in the docs, but that is due to
my impaired vision.

Any help/advice would be appreciated.

Cheers -- Chris
