Alternative to Google code for python x,y?
I'm writing, because I'm very grateful for Python X,Y, and we
recommend it with enthusiasm for our windows users:
I saw that you are using Google code, and I was wondering if you'd
consider hosting downloads somewhere else. The reason is that Google
code robustly blocks various countries subject to US embargoes -
including Cuba, where I often work ,
Actually, Sourceforge was recently forced to do the same , but then
allowed people to opt out .
I often expound the goodness of Python to my Cuban colleagues but of
course it's not encouraging when they try and download free software
and are told they are from a 'forbidden country'. It also seems to me
contrary to the principles of open source .
Is there any chance you would consider a mirror or similar somewhere
less affected by the relevant restrictions?
Thanks a lot,
