The Wing project file is now checked in. It is Misc/python-wing.wpr
The project is configured with SVN integration enabled, with two file
configuration and the wpu file SVN ignored plus the main project
The wpr file is text so changes are diff friendly.
There is an issue with the way the project is displayed - the Misc
directory is the top-level with '..' showing as another directory in the
project. This issue will be resolved in the next version of Wing.
There are various other feature-requests now with Wing to better support
using it for developing Python. Currently the debugger doesn't work with
a newly built version of Python and the executable name / location is
platform dependent and so setting a custom executable would only work on
It would be easy to add custom tools to (for example) integrate regrtest
or do the configure / make dance on a fresh checkout.
All the best,
