Hi Phil,

Thanks for the heads up.

Minor bug report: on https://riverbankcomputing.com/software/pyqt/download,
the tarballs descriptions say:

 PyQt4_gpl_x11-4.12.dev1603251518.tar.gz | Linux, UNIX, MacOS/X source
 PyQt4_gpl_mac-4.12.dev1603251518.tar.gz | Linux, UNIX, MacOS/X source

I believe it should be instead:

 PyQt4_gpl_x11-4.12.dev1603251518.tar.gz | Linux, UNIX source
 PyQt4_gpl_mac-4.12.dev1603251518.tar.gz | Mac OS X source
