Python 2.5 Bindings on Windows

Hi All,
    I have been chasing down problems with the Python 2.5 Subversion
bindings on Windows and I finally found some information to explain
why here:


Basically, .dll is no longer an accepted extension for loading shared
libraries that Python modules require. This means that the Windows
Subversion Python 2.5 bindings on subversion.tigris.org do not work
as-is. Simply renaming all of the python/libsvn/_*.dll to
python/libsvn/_*.pyd makes the bindings work. Now, the reason I bring
this up on dev is because I wanted to know if our build process should
handle this for us or if education is enough? (Education being
updating the INSTALL file and/or web materials.) As of now, no one
knows there is a problem other than running into "No module named
_***" which isn't very intuitive.

Take care,
