[mapserver-dev] Python MapScript on PyPI

Hi devs: given recent movement on Python MapScript [1][2],
Seth and I (here at Bonn code sprint) have been discussing
updates to Python MapScript being made available on PyPI.
For those who may not be aware, PyPI is Python's main package
index.  Publishing to PyPI would allow for users to (assuming
a MapServer installation) easily install MapScript for Python-based

Having said this, it turns out MapScript is currently published to
PyPI [3] dating back to 5.6.3.

I will contact the PyPI maintainers to discuss having PyPI
releases as part of the MapServer release process proper.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me.
