Whiteboard

Basic build scripts have been placed in the dist folder. These scripts won't work for distribution. Things to do:

1.) (Done) Change build scripts so that it creates signed packages rather than unsigned packages.
2.) (Done) Complete an appropriate copyright statement for distribution.
3.) (To-Do: Future) Modify the build script so that it can detect the version from setup.py, rather than having it hard coded.
