This buildout is a collection of configurations to make it easy to compile various Python versions with or without the necessary dependencies.

The default buildout.cfg configuration is for Mac OS X Leopard, because that's what this buildout was initially created for.


See docs/INSTALL.txt


See docs/UPGRADE.txt

Advanced Usage

The buildout is split up to make it easy to mix and match the parts you need.

If the links.cfg is used, then a script 'install-links' is created in the 'bin' directory. That script makes it easy to create symbolic links to all the binaries and scripts in this buildout. You should set the destination for those links by creating a 'local.cfg' with the following content and run it with 'bin/buildout -c local.cfg' after modifying the 'prefix' setting to your needs:

extends = buildout.cfg

prefix = /path/for/the/links

The buildout is built in a way that you can easily extend it with your own configuration.

Just get a Git clone:

git clone git:// python

And use a custom buildout.cfg like this:

extends = python/src/base.cfg python/src/python27.cfg
python-buildout-root = ${buildout:directory}/python/src

If you want just one python version but all dependencies, then use something like this:

extends =

parts =
