No problem. I'm happy if I can contribute. - Now about this next version.
I don't know how much time you spent looking at my modifications yet.
However I still have a few questions about the further proceeding:
1) There is no need to install pywin32 for the installation process on
- At least not for bdist_wininst. - Should anything be checked
import or do you think a simple message, stating that pywin32, ctypes
and readline are recommended is sufficient ?
2) I'm not sure what should be done in the case of cmd=bdist ? - What I did
not like about the way "IPython-0.6.6.zip" worked, was the fact that
install files outside of ..\Lib\site-packages\IPython\ without
giving me any
means to deinstall. (Other than saving the complete output of the
cmd into a log-file and removing everything by hand :-)
Do you have an idea/ a plan or do you think that simply removing the
usage of the post-installation script completely from the zip-archive is
sufficient and/or acceptable ?
