Re: Python 2.6 ?

I've started to make some progress in releasing Python 2.5 and 2.6 for

python-2.5.4-10.cygport from cygwin-ports SVN as my starting point.


1. I removed your 2.5.2-tkinter-x11.patch and added a 2.5.5-tkinter.patch,
so _tkinter builds and runs against the Win32 tcltk instead of the X11
version.  FWIW, this is consistent with the _tkinter module that has
been in the standard Cygwin distribution for years.

Ports' Tcl/Tk is X11, where the distro's is Win32-based, so the distro version must still use the latter. Note that there have been discussions about switching the distro's Tcl/Tk to X11 as well, so whenever that does happen you'll need that patch.

2. I added 2.5.5-curses.patch and CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/include/ncurses, so
the _curses and _curses_panel modules will build cleanly against the
latest ncurses.

Right, my last package was built for libncurses9.

Are you OK with these changes?

Looks fine. One more thing: don't use 2.5.2-ossaudio.patch. Cygwin is missing /dev/mixer so the module doesn't really work.

I would like to release 2.5.5 first and then 2.6.4.  Unfortunately,
there is no HTML documentation specifically for 2.5.5, so I guess I
should use the documentation from 2.5.4.  Do you know of any clever ways
to mix 2.5.5 source and 2.5.4 documentation without having to hardcode
versions in the cygport file?

No, in this case you'll have to hardcode the documentation version. I just committed a 2.5.5 .cygport which shows you how this can be done.
