New unofficial binary installers

Russell Owen
I just created some unofficial binary installers for the python.org's
64-bit python 2.7.2 for Mac OS X 10.6 and later.

They are available here:
<http://www.astro.washington.edu/users/rowen/python/>
and include:
- pyfits 3.0.7 (did not run unit tests; I can't seem to find them)
- PIL 1.1.7 (includes all dependencies and passes all tests)
- pygame 1.9.1 (includes all dependencies except SCAN; of 408 tests
there were 3 errors--including two png tests--and two failures)

Re: New unofficial binary installers

Russell,

Thanks for doing these (and the others you've done)

It seems to me that there is still a need for an "official" location
for such binaries. Bob Ippolito used to have such a site back in the
day, and while it's less necessary now (more package developers
provide their own binaries), there is still a need. It would be really
nice for MacPython users to have a one-stop shopping location for
packages.

I imagine something very simple -- a page you can download from, that
could be uploaded to by a handful of us that build compatible
packages.

Anyone have an idea where to host such an page?

-Chris
