I have been mining on p2pool for quite a long time now. At first, it was BTC. Then, when the ASICs came out i swapped to LTC. I've never had any problems with it, until i tried to mine DOGE today. I noticed, that the 13.4 version of the p2pool client (https://github.com/forrestv/p2pool/zipball/13.4) does NOT have Dogecoin support. It supports BTC,LTC and Teracoin. So, basically, what i did was to research why that is and what version i need to make it work.
A few hours and a dozen posts in reddit (meh) later, it turns out, that there isn't a Windows Binary (executable) version out yet. The updates are made and they can be found and acquired here:
https://github.com/blixnood/p2pool/

The problem is, that right now the files are in the form of Python script. It isn't hard to make the p2pool client itself run, but you also need to build(aka compile) a "module" for the scrypt based altcoins to work. The process is well(i think) documented in the notes below, but for me it was pretty hard to do and it required quite a lot of tools(software) and research. Not to mention how uncomfortable this all is, when you have more than one rig to configure.

So, the point of this thread is- an appeal to someone who has the knowledge and time to make a Windows Binary out of the repo and post the link. I assume it hasn't been done by the awesome guys who developed p2pool and made the updates, just because they didn't have a chance or probably are too busy, but i believe this will be really helpful for most users. If by any chance some of you have done it already, or it has been implemented and i was just too dumb to find it, please do not hesitate to post the links.

Such thanks much in advance.

Do not download and use executable code from unknown persons. This is asking for a trojan infection, and the loss of all your coins.

There is nothing dishonest in the file archive. Feel free to check it with whatever antivirus software you like. Just it seems hard to find so i decided to upload it.

EDIT: just scanned it with virustotal online check, link https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/0ff63adca9e5d63a4a875860830b8ce694e8ad0e185e256c1ac68c9af1653cd3/analysis/1391013948/

But, yeah, better do not download and use anything from anywhere besides the official GITs. If you can use Python scripts and build the litecoin_scrypt module i'd recommend doing that on your own.

No offense meant. Just looks a bit fishy when something like this is offered on a brand  new acount. Seen it many times before...

None taken. I've been browsing these forums for years, just never had anything new to say, since most people around here are pretty well aware of what is going on and posses either more skill or more information than me. So i didn't fell like i can contribute;p

Anyhow, it was a legit concern on your side. Just thought it might help someone who can't do these things for themselves.
Cheers
