Old Build System
The website build system has been rewritten. The old build system was called Pyramid. This info is being maintained a short time until the website completely abandons Pyramid:
Install Pyramid as described in PythonWebsitePyramidDocs
- See build/README in the checked out beta.python.org tree.
See PythonWebsiteHomePage for discussion on what should be on the home page (some of which has been completed, but not all).
