We did a repository rearrangement recently at the request of what we
perceived was the majority of the community. It's possible we broke
or changed the daily snapshots and we'll take a look.

_rl_accel and _renderPM are in subversion and in the 2.2 tar.gz files
under src/rl_addons. The idea is to have them in the main reportlab
distros, and thus prebuilt in any Windows installers, or built by
"setup.py install" for those with a compiler.

I can't offer an immediate answer but have ensured both issues are
logged in our tracker:


We'll ensure we work through this soon.
