pyOpenGL for python 2.3

Hi, why hasn't there a version of pyOpenGL for python 2.3.x yet? Currently
the binary installers for windows only work with python 2.2, and will give
an when installing for python 2.3. I can't build it either unless I build
python 2.3 from source as well. Is there a work around available?? Thanks
in advance.

Because no one with MSVC++ 6.0 has stepped up to package it yet :) . I
don't have access to a copy of VC++ that can be used for externally
released applications, so I need someone to do the build and produce a
package for redistribution.

Yes, PyOpenGL is a binary package that is linked to specific Python and
Numpy versions. You cannot use a binary created for Python 2.2 with
Python 2.3.

Actually, that's not a requirement. Building requires only the Python
2.3 distributed from python.org, VC++ and the various .lib and .h files
as outlined on the installation page.
Is there a work around available??
Arthur has a "minimal" installer available, but it's missing the OpenGL
extensions:

Note: Tk support is not available under Python 2.3 in any version of
PyOpenGL.

If you do have VC++ 6.0, then you just need to follow the build
instructions linked off the homepage.
Thanks
in advance.

Enjoy,
Mike

I built PyOpenGL with a binary of Python 2.3 just fine, once I grabbed all the
needed dependencies. What was your problem?
