distribute-0.6.39 broke zc.buildout-2.1.0

Create issue
Issue #376 resolved
Guy Rozendorn created an issue


zc.buildout uses the 'cli.exe' from distribute: File "C:\Cygwin\home\Administrator\python\lib\site-packages\zc.buildout-2.1.0-py2.7.egg\zc\buildout\easy_install.py", line 1107, in _create_script new_data = pkg_resources.resource_string('setuptools', 'cli.exe')

in 0.6.39 cli.exe was removed; I already started a thread on buildout's mailing list to use the proper wrappers, but until it is resolved, can you please copy cli-32.exe to cli.exe and gui-32.exe to gui as a backward-compatibility workaround? it won't affect distribute's easy_install, and it will allow other packages to do a clean transition.

Thanks, Guy

    @jaraco , I wanted to do the release on my own (I have admin privileges over the package in PyPI), but I got stuck on the travis CI -- its running the code from your github repository, which I cannot push my changes to.

    The tests pass on my end, and I want to release this as soon as possible; Unless you object, I'd like to go on with the release tomorrow on my own and lets worry on the CI later. Thanks, Guy

    released. @tarek , can you please upload the bootstrap script, or send me the ssh key by mail and I'll do it? thanks!

    @jaraco , the release script failed to create the milestone and version through the bitbucket API (guess I don't have permission?)

    Arg arg arg!

    Sorry for my silence on the issue. My bitbucket e-mails were getting swallowed by a rule which I created for the bitbucket-users mailing list, but which recently started to match all e-mail from bitbucket.

    Otherwise, I would have addressed this promptly. I'll get the script updated right away.
