Python binary packages and Debian

For any binary packages that are likely to be the same version across most systems why not build it using the instructions at the web page at the top and upload a source package to packages.ilrt. I can thenĀ  automatically rebuild (buildd, CI, pdebuild, cowbuilder) the source package for all flavours of debian and archs. Much better and automatically deployable than running easy_install*.

This is the official and fully supported way to get software on to servers. I will gladly provide training and access to anyone who adopts this method. In fact I will buy you a beer or cake if you do!

* I have an adverse hatred for easy_install. It should be banned.
