How do I report a bug?Visit the bug page at sourceforge. Please include as much information as possible, including a short script that demonstrates the problem and is able to be executed by others (ie, there is no point attaching a script that depends on other modules of yours, on a specific database driver, or even on a hard-coded filename.) To request a new feature, visit the feature request page at sourceforge.
How do I get help on a problem, or request a new feature?You should try the mailing list resources available via mail.python.org - specifically, check out python-list for general Python discussions, or python-win32 for a Windows specific mailing list.
How do I use the exposed Win32 functions to do xyz?In general, the trick is to not consider it a Python/PyWin32 question at all, but to search for documentation or examples of your problem, regardless of the language. This will generally give you the information you need to perform the same operations using these extensions. The included documentation will tell you the arguments and return types of the functions so you can easily determine the correct way to "spell" things in Python.
Can multiple builds exist on the same machine?
Multiple major Python builds (1.6, 2.0, etc) and it's associated PyWin32 build should co-exist perfectly on the same machine. The only things to be aware of are:
