Egg news :-)

Hi list,

it's been a while, but I finally managed to build some fresh
Python-LDAP 2.3.8 eggs. In particular:

- Win32 (Statically linked to OpenLDAP 2.4.16 and OpenSSL 0.9.8k, no
  further DLLs necessary.)
- MacOS X 10.3 through 10.5 (Statically linked to OpenLDAP 2.4.16 and
  dynamically bound to the Cyrus-SASL and OpenSSL libs that ship with
  OS X 10.5.7 - only tested on 10.5.7 Intel - testers welcome!!!)
- Linux x86 and x86_64 (aka amd64) (Built on Gentoo Linux, dynamically
  linked to OpenLDAP 2.4.16, Cyrus-SASL 2.1.23, OpenSSL 0.9.8k, all
  compiled with glibc-2.10.1)

All eggs are available for Python versions 2.4 through 2.6 and can be
downloaded via

@Michael: Can you please add the '/contrib/' subdir to the download
link on the webpage and replace the HTML snippet beginning with
"For the .egg files to work [...]" up to "[...] from the same directory
as the .egg files" by the following lines (provided you have no
objections to them, of course. ;-)

--- snip ---


    <b>for Linux:</b> OpenLDAP-2.4.16, OpenSSL-0.9.8k, and
    Cyrus-SASL-2.1.23 must be properly installed on your system.
    <b>for MacOS X:</b> The .egg files are statically linked to
    OpenLDAP 2.4.16, but only tested on OS X 10.5.7 Intel.<br>
    <b>Testers with 10.3 through 10.4 and/or PPC machines are
    <b>for MS Windows:</b> The Windows eggs are statically linked to
    all necessary libraries and should run out of the box.

Btw.: Earlier today I sent the same mail to the list, but tried to send
the snippet as an attachment. That didn't seem to work, probably due to
SF list restrictions...

Best regards,
Anyone can do any amount of work provided it isn't the work he is
supposed to be doing at the moment.
