Installing lots of packages

    I've got a whole bunch of package dependencies in the programs I develop.
    Mainly, they are generic libraries/utilities I've written that are needed
    by most of the programs I write. The biggest problem I've had with
    python's packaging system is that I end up needing to install every library
    package on each machine I install my programs on. It's even worse when I
    go through an upgrade...

    Is there any way to create something like a "meta-package"? ie, can bundle
    a whole bunch of packages together under a single installer? I'm working
    on both Windows and Mac so the tools need to support both platforms. Does
    anything exist for this purpose?

    Thanks,

    ack, sorry about that. Knode lied to me when it said the message didn't go
    through ;o)
