I recently found an error in sdist when running egg_info against a distribution with an invalid on Python 2.7.2.

{{{ PS C:\Users\jaraco\G\panoptic> ./setup egg_info running egg_info writing requirements to panoptic.egg-info\requires.txt writing panoptic.egg-info\PKG-INFO writing top-level names to panoptic.egg-info\top_level.txt writing dependency_links to panoptic.egg-info\dependency_links.txt writing entry points to panoptic.egg-info\entry_points.txt reading manifest template '' Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Users\jaraco\G\panoptic\", line 46, in <module> setup_requires=["hgtools"], ...

The error was masking the true error, which should have been:

{{{ ... File "C:\Python\lib\distutils\", line 201, in convert_path raise ValueError, "path '%s' cannot end with '/'" % pathname ValueError: path 'panoptic/htmldocs/' cannot end with '/' }}}

It turns out that the [[|grody hack]] is patching a problem that was [[|fixed]] in recent releases of Python.
