+Building da bundles
+--------------------
+Because, you know, bundles are cool. Who needs a decent package manager nowadays? </rant>.
+
+You need a couple of things in your virtualenv:
+
+- All the dependencies. A sumo tarball is probably a good idea.
+- PyInstaller. Version 3 or higher.
+- A PySide build. While the postmkenv.sh hack is good enough for
+  developing, you will need a wheel built with --standalone flag.
+  See
+  http://pyside.readthedocs.org/en/latest/building/linux.html#building-pyside-distribution::
+
+    $ python2.7 setup.py bdist_wheel --qmake=/usr/bin/qmake-qt4 --standalone
+
+  (since this takes a while, you can probably grab the already built wheel from
+  the leap servers).
