Hi Marius,

I did run some trials of reportlab with pypy a while back and it was mostly 
working. I nevert tried out with an alpha though :)

I looked at the travis thing, but it looked like double dutch to me, my best 
interpretation is that something went wrong with 
https://github.com/mgedmin/mgp2pdf.git, but looking there I see that 6 days ago 
you dropped the pypy support in the code.

I will try and set up a pypy  test in the near future. I'm almost certain last 
time I tried the failures were mostly to do with pil/pillow. You seem to have no 
trouble with pillow as you commented

According to


RL is compatible, but my naive attempts to do pip install reportlab fail when 
trying to do extension compilations so it can't be that compatible.
