> people.freenet.de/schwertberger/ , and
> it seems that this has lapsed (it takes
> you to a generic "domains available" page).
> Additionally, it is not possible to compile
> Python from source without a patched version
> of the DLK library which was on Schwertberger's page.

> Eventually, I found the binaries at
> http://web.archive.org/web/20071223061900/http://python.acorn.de/
> Would it be possible to retrieve these and
> save them on python.org so they don't disappear?

> I know the number of people using this port is now low,
> but when somebody does need it they really need it.
> (For example I've lost the copy that was on my hard
> drive and need to re-download.)
