Strategic? I dont think that is as much as it is a sign of an updated
buildout process for 2.7 which is different from our prior buildout
There MAY be more binary builds; but I won't be the one building them (I
think!) so I'm less clear on what the answer is. I can safely predict a
windows build because there is no native Python or C compiler support on
Windows, ergo we have to provide a binary.
Chris McDonough knows a lot more about what the new build process looks
In the past we've gotten beaten about by the build variability on
different platforms, and never really found a good solution.
In a similar vein, a major reason I haven't issued any more binary
builds for DCOracle2 is because the build complexity is now:
3 versions of Python (1.5.2, 2.1.3, 2.2.2) * 3 platforms (Windows,
RedHat 7.3, Solaris 8) * 3 revs of Oracle (8.1.7, 9.0.1, 9.1.x) = major
pain in the ass.
That doesn't count the variability amongst Linux releases (just look at
Red Hat, e.g. Oracle 8.1 is spec'd for RedHat 6.2, etc).
