I've just fixed the bdist_wininst command in CVS.
There is not much time left before the release of Python 2.2 (how much
exactly?).

To make sure that the current version works correctly, I would kindly
request some testers to build windows installers from some of their
package distributions, and check them to make sure they work correctly.

The full story is in bug [#483982]: Python 2.2b2 bdist_wininst crashes:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=483982&group_id
=5470&atid=105470

To test the new version, you only have to replace the file
Lib/distutils/command/bdist_wininst.py in your Python 2.2 distribution
with the new one from CVS (rev 1.27):

http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/python/python/dist/src/Li
b/distutils/command/bdist_wininst.py

Thanks,

Thomas
