A new mod_python 3.2.5 beta tarball is now available for testing. A windows binary should be available shortly.

I thought I'd add a note on building on Windows...

Please download it, then do the usual

$ ./configure --with-apxs=/wherever/it/is
$ make
$ (su)
# make install

download, untar, then do (substituting your apache directory for the one below)
cd dist
set APACHESRC="c:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2"

Note that without setting APACHESRC, the setup will try and locate apxs to find the include and library directories, which will fail on a default (non-source) apache install (and which requires running configure which is wierd on windows anyway...)

Perhaps a note on the could be added to the README?

Then (as non-root user!)

$ cd test
$ python test.py

And see if any tests fail. If they pass, send a +1 to the list, if they
fail, send the details (the versions of OS, Python and Apache, the test
output, and suggestions, if any).

Again, you can't do this on Windows without running configure.
Did those who tested on Windows run configure or how did they get it to work? I'm curious as to the setup :-) I tried building myself and testing the py2.4 installer, but with both the tests failed to start the Apache service and so universally failed.
This was with a manually created testconf.py
I'm not giving a -1 until I know I'm doing the right thing though :-)
And I'd like to provide a way of doing this on Windows without configure if possible
