msg292617 - (view) Author: Decorater (Decorater) * Date: 2017-04-30 04:35 does not offer the options to include tests with the tkinner stuff when making the full distributions immediately after building python using MSVC.

Basically running makezip like this:

".\PCbuild\amd64\python.exe" ".\Tools\msi\" -a x64 -o ".\python36-x86-x64"

or like this:

".\PCbuild\win32\python.exe" ".\Tools\msi\" -o ".\python36-x86"

does not even include the tests and tkinner stuff that is optional when installing python by the installer. I would like command sqitches to be able to if desired.

Also on the 64 bit copy it does mess up where none of the libs\*.lib, nor any of the assemblies are copied. And is reproducible on me.

Can you separate out the bug report from the feature request as two separate issues? You can keep one here and rename the title if you want.

I disagree with this going into the core repo - this script is meant for producing our official packages, and is not a general purpose tool.

If someone does make changes, please backport them as far as possible (so that bug fixes are easy to cherry pick) and don't break the core use case.
