- make tag in subversion
    "svn copy
    " % version

- build tar.gz, egg for 2.4 and 2.5 and send them to pypi.
  On my system (Unbuntu gutsy):
    python2.4 egg_info -RDb "" register bdist_egg upload
    python2.5 egg_info -RDb "" sdist bdist_egg upload

  or, you could also set an alias up like this:
    python alias -u release egg_info -RDb ""

  On older systems, you might need to upload the files manually to Pypi.
