Hi Matt,

What would really help me is a python 2.4 version of fwtools. At the 
moment I have fwtools installed with GDAL under 2.3. I then have a 
separate installation of GDAL under 2.4 so I can use some other tools 
that require GDAL and python 2.4!

I also like the idea of everything and the kitchen sink installations 
but wonder if Enthought will release sufficiently regularly to be 
useful. At the moment there is only the 1 Enthon release from before the 
scipy conference and I could not find a subversion version. Having said 
that the Enthon version is really great.

Best wishes, Simon
