Frozen Releases

I started commenting this section until I saw the one below. I personally do not see much benefit from the frozen release. That said, it would be trivial to create one from the updateable version below. I have already scripts for this, which are checked in as part of Jim's PyPI mirror tool.

I don't understand why you believe you couldn't benefit from a frozen release.

If you don't have a frozen release, you always run the following risk:

* you release your code to someone else (another customer, or another developer)

* after this, someone uploads a new bugfix release for an egg which causes your code to break

* the customer, or another developer, installs the code, and it breaks, where it used to work when you released it.

This risk can never be completely eliminated without frozen releases.
