At some of the Twisted Sprints in San Francisco,
I found that on my Windows laptop, it was
easy to set things up Twisted quickly by using the
ActiveState Python package manager (pypm).

I wrote some notes for doing this at:

Rather than keep that info on my own web page, I thought
it would be nice to contribute the information back to the Twisted wiki.
This would not be the official way of installing Twisted on
Windows, but would be some helpful information for
an alternative way to install things on Windows.

Since I do not have wiki edit permissions, I made a patch
to http://twistedmatrix.com/trac/wiki/Downloads .
If someone could help get this info on the wiki that would
be great.
