distutils2 / DEVNOTES.txt

Notes for developers

- Distutils2 runs on Python from 2.4 to 3.2 (3.x not implemented yet),
  so make sure you don't use a syntax that doesn't work under
  one of these Python versions.

- Always run tests.sh before you push a change. This implies
  that you have all Python versions installed from 2.4 to 2.7.

- With Python 2.4, if you want to run tests with runtests.py, or run
  just one test directly, be sure to run python2.4 setup.py build_ext
  first, else tests won't find _hashlib or _md5. When using tests.sh,
  build_ext is automatically done.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
