Sure. Why not? :-) I'm going to want to be able to build everything
myself, so all you have to do is figure out how to build it in an
acceptable way. pygame itself should be packaged up with Bob Ippolito's
Do the standard 1.2.7 frameworks work? or do you have to compile more
things? I don't know if they include SMPEG in the frameworks.
Packaging up pygame (and pygtk, too; you're not alone) is, I think,
going to be low on my list of priorities. Most of the packages on the
list are there because I have, sometimes extensive, experience with
building them and getting them to work; this way I can spend my efforts
on the packaging itself. I haven't built pygame in a while, and with its
dependencies, it is probably going to be more complicated than the other

MacEnthon won't be released next week, so don't waste your weekend if
you don't have to. There will probably be a few alpha releases, so you
should have plenty of time.

I'm actually going to go with CVS since it has some post-23.6 changes
related to the Mac.

Preferably, libraries should compile into frameworks. Hopefully, the
standard packages distributed by libsdl.org will suffice.
See the Wiki page for my current thoughts on how this is all going to work.
