Since py2app requires no "installation" process, it's rather trivial.

Install svn trunk (works whether or not py2app is already installed):

# download/install subversion from <http://www.codingmonkeys.de/mbo/> 
if you don't already have it.  You should, it rocks.
mkdir ~/src
mkdir -p ~/Library/Python/2.3/site-packages
svn co http://svn.red-bean.com/bob/py2app/trunk ~/src/py2app
echo "$HOME/src/py2app" > /Library/Python/2.3/py2app.pth
# optionally add ~/src/py2app/scripts to your PATH

Update to current release:
svn up ~/src/py2app

Uninstall (restores existing py2app):

rm -rf ~/src/py2app
# if not restoring existing py2app, rm this file instead
echo py2app > /Library/Python/2.3/py2app.pth
