[IPython-dev] Windows build service

Hi all,

At my request, ShiningPanda have activated a Windows build environment
for our project, and even thrown in $5 of free build credits to
experiment with it.

After some fiddling, tests on Python 2.7 are passing:

This is currently set up to run at a rather conservative twice per
week. But any of the core devs* can trigger an immediate run, and we
might want to increase the rate near release time.

I also tried to get a Python 3.2 job running, but at present a bug in
distribute (https://bitbucket.org/tarek/distribute/issue/284/get_exe_prefixes-passes-bytes-to
) prevents us installing pywin32 inside the virtualenv. If anyone more
Windows-savvy knows a workaround, your help would be appreciated!
Otherwise, hopefully we'll get a fix in place before long.

Best wishes,

* Core devs: if you don't have access to our project on ShiningPanda
and you want it, let me know.
