distribute-setup.py does not work with Python 3.1.1

Hi there,

I just tried distribute-setup.py with python 3.1.1 and I get the following traceback:


File "distribute_setup.py", line 140 except pkg_resources.VersionConflict, e: ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax


I ran {{{2to3 -w}}} on it and it still failed with the following traceback:


Downloading http://pypi.python.org/packages/source/d/distribute/distribute-0.6.2.tar.gz Extracting in /tmp/tmp3zpdM_ Traceback (most recent call last): File "distribute_setup.py", line 428, in <module> main(sys.argv[1:]) File "distribute_setup.py", line 424, in main _install(tarball) File "distribute_setup.py", line 72, in _install extractall(tar) File "distribute_setup.py", line 404, in extractall directories.sort(sorter) TypeError: must use keyword argument for key function


With the 0.6.2 release supporting Python 3, I thought I should mention issue.

Thanks for the great work!

    Hi Krys, Thanks for the feedback.

    We bumped into these problems and fixed them. 0.6.3 is out.

    You can use distribute_setup_3k.py in nightly.ziade.org, and it should work fine now.
