I think it is the sourceforge users list which is mirrored on gmane. It
is very inactive for some time, one reason is probably that there hasn't
been a new release in a long time (Riaan are you reading ;-) ), and
people who use Boa are familiar with it so fewer questions.

Boa should use the default wxPython version, unless you use
"WxVersionSelect" command line option, actually looking at my Boa.py

if wxVersionSelect is None:
Basically Boa uses the wxversion stuff, check its documentation to see
how this works (PYTHONPATH and wx.pth in site-packages).
Hope this helps.
