Hi Nenad and Florian,

The thought did occur to me about providing more versions via PyPI, but I
can only imagine, and as mentioned by Phil, the amount of work involved in
actually getting something like that off the ground.

Having said that, as there seems to be some interest, I see no reason why
we couldn’t make it a team effort. I’ll be working on GitHub and getting
PyPI builds up via Travis, as that is how I’m working currently.

I’ll give a shout once I’ve gotten started and maybe we could start talking
about ways to go at it from there?

For reference, this <https://github.com/abstractfactory/pyblish> is the
project the I’m working with.

You could install one of the Windows installers and see what gets installed
in site-packages\PyQt5.

Thanks Phil, I’ll have a look at that. Out of interest, how did *you*
figure this out?
