Comment (by benoit.rivet@…):

 Thank you for taking care of this bug report, and many apologies for
 having mixed different requests.

 Since the merger of IEP into Pyzo, I don't think it would prove useful to
 create a Pyzo port for MacPorts.

 Previously, Pyzo included a full featured Python installation (with numpy,
 spicy, matplotlib, sympy, scikit, pandas and other scientific modules).
 Since version 4, Pyzo is just an editor and does not include any Python
 installation : on first launch, Pyzo proposes to install Anaconda or to
 use any installed Python on the computer (including MacPorts); and after
 this first run, one can always create a "shell configuration" in Pyzo
 using MacPorts's Python instead of Anaconda. If Python 2.7, 3.4 and 3.5
 have been installed, one can even switch from 2.7 to 3.4 or 3.5 and back
 using shell configurations in Pyzo...

 Packaging Pyzo into MacPorts would only increase your workload with little
 to no benefit for MacPorts users.

 Anyway, many thanks for your work : I really appreciate using MacPorts,
 which proves reliable even on old hardware. For exemple, I have been able
 to install Python 3.4 almost flawlessly on a G3 iBook thanks to your
 efforts ;-)
