[New-bugs-announce] [issue11079] Make OS X entry in Applications like that in Windows

New submission from Raymond Hettinger <rhettinger at users.sourceforge.net>:

In Applications, the 3.2 entry includes:
* Python Launcher
* Update Shell.Profile Command
* Extras directory

The latter should be dropped (most of the tools only make sense from the command-line) and should be replaced by a link to the docs:


This setup better matches what we offer in Windows and it makes the docs more accessible.

The Windows setup also includes an uninstall option.  It would be nice if OS X did the same, but I don't know if that is the way of the Mac.
