I don't think there is one. I am not aware of one anyway.

One or two minor releases on SourceForge last year were made by me (adding very 
initial Smartphone support for example). I didn't try to add the changes to a source 
control repositry etc as it seemed one would need to be created from scratch. I 
didn't really know who was in charge or control of the direction of the PythonCE 
project and didn't want to step over my authority etc.

Since then I haven't had too much personal time to spend on the project. I do have a 
few additional patches floating around somewhere...

This is compounded by the fact that there doesn't seem to be an active development 
effort surrounding the port. Since I submitted my last set of patches I've only had 
one person offer to help, and they "disappeared". I don't have the time to invest to 
make a fully polished port by myself.

I would potentially be interested in giving you a helping hand (I am an expert in 
Windows CE / Windows Mobile development) if you do setup a SVN repository somewhere 
and managed to get a more active development process going.

Hope this helps,
