Could you or someone else make final source releases of these

releasing non-changes. :)
In the short term, I'll go ahead and make windows eggs for the
packages that have latest source distros.
Yes, I noticed that too. I think the current situtation is way too
confusing. We should decide which the authoritative source for the
eggs is, the CheeseShop or http://download.zope.org/distribution.
The advantage of the latter is that everybody with checkin rights
can release a new egg, whereas on the CheeseShop it takes access
Once we reach steady state, I'd like to see everything in the cheese
shop. Unfortunately, I hate crapping poorly packaged eggs there. :

It would be great if people who had time and were looking for easy
projects would adopt some packages and make sure they are packaged
well, especially with good overview information and on-line
documentation. I don't have much time for this in the short term,
although I'll certainly chip away at it in the long term.
Point me at an existing source release, and I'll be happy to
generate corresponding windows eggs.
I made windows eggs for the latest version of zope.interface
that's in pypi.
Great. So we have zope.interface and zope.proxy and there'll be no
need for zope.thread. Which leaves us with:
I'll make Python 2.4 windows eggs today and put them there.
I realize that those aren't final releases, but they (most
probably) haven't changed significantly after these releases were
made, which would make it a waste of time if I had to tag and
tarball them just for the sake of a different version ID.
We really need to get these to final. Most of our packages are
stable and unchanging. Once we get them to final, we'll be able to
mostly forget about them.
