I see your point.  I'm just lazy, I guess.  I already put a description 
of what I've changed into git, so why, I muse, must I also edit the 
overview page separately?  I was hoping there was an automatic way that 
"setup.py sdist upload" could handle it for me.

Not sure I get this.  The installation procedure for PollyReports is the 
same as for, what, 99% of Python source packages?

     sudo python setup.py install

What else are you saying I should do?
