The Subversion project itself has never created nor endorsed the
binary packages such as the Windows installer with the python
bindings. Therefore, I don't know that Tigris.org has ever *claimed*
to be the "official" download location for those installers. We may
have hosted them there in the past, but we've relied upon volunteers
to maintain those packages.

The 1.6.6 versions are still available for download, but until
somebody steps up to provide these installers, updated versions won't
be available.
