Thank you!

I recall that we discussed that, but I understood that you was too
busy to implement the idea. No, you didn't forget and you made it! ;-)

> Hi all
> As part of a deal with Zach Ware at PyCon, I agreed that if he removed the
> Subversion dependency from our builds, I would set up daily Windows builds
> of Python. Zach did an excellent job, and so I am now following through on
> my half of the deal :)
> For a while I've been uploading the official releases to nuget.org. These
> packages can be installed with nuget.exe (latest version always available at
> https://aka.ms/nugetclidl), which is quickly becoming a standard tool in
> Microsoft's build toolsets. It's very much a CI-focused package manager,
> rather than a user-focused one, and CI on Windows was previously an area
> where it was difficult to use Python.
> See the official feed at https://www.nuget.org/packages/python, and related
> packages pythonx86, python2 and python2x86.
> For people looking for an official "no installer" version of Python for
> Windows, this is it.
> And since all the infrastructure was there already, I decided to publish
> daily builds in a similar way to myget.org:
>     https://www.myget.org/feed/python/package/nuget/pythondaily
> To install the latest daily build, run nuget.exe with this command:
>     nuget.exe pythondaily -Source
> https://www.myget.org/F/python/api/v3/index.json
> (Note that if you already have a "pythondaily" package in that directory,
> nuget will consider the requirement satisfied. As I said, it's meant for
> reproducible CI builds rather than users who want to update things in the
> least amount of keystrokes :) )
> The sys.version string contains the short commit hash. Please include this
> string when reporting bugs in these builds. Also, only the amd64 Release
> build is available pre-built.
>     >>> sys.version
>     '3.7.0a0 (remotes/origin/master:733d0f63c, Aug  8 2017, 15:56:14) [MSC
> v.1900 64 bit (AMD64)]'
> Hopefully this is valuable for people who want to include daily builds in
> their own test runs or validate recent bug fixes.
> Cheers,
> Steve
