In the Scoring-platform-team project, we're planning to do deployments using python wheels. I talked to @csteipp about it and he had some concerns about how we might implement "signing" on top of these wheels. Please review them and give us any notes on how you'd like to us to manage deployments using wheels.
See http://pythonwheels.com/ for discussion of how they work.
See http://git.wikimedia.org/summary/?r=research/ores/wheels.git for our repo of python wheels.
Currently, we're building the wheels on ores-compute-01.eqiad.wmflabs.
