Thanks for responding.

I think you mean mxODBC changelog.

The only version of this package installed on this system for this
Python is 2.0.6, which I downloaded as

  find . -type f | xargs egrep '__version__ *= *'

in the source shows that none of the subpackages have this version
number, but it is the only version installed on this system for this
Python.  There is a copy of the same version installed in this Python's
site-packages, but I wasn't convinced it was done correctly, so I built
it myself and installed it in my own spot and am modifying sys.path to
import it instead of the site-packages copy.
