Issue #69 open

Workaround for distutils bug.

Patrick Gerken
created an issue

There is a missing dependency in the install_lib command: http://bugs.python.org/issue5243

As a result, some eggs can not be installed. Reportlab for example.

I can provide a patch but with bitbucket there seems to be a more clever way, that I don't know yet.

Should I check the code out, and create a branch for a bugfix, or what is the recommended way to do this?

thx.

    You can provide a patch, or make a fork. But a fork seems like overkill for one bugfix.

    Branches, we have learned in painful ways, is a bad idea in mercurial, at least at the moment. :)

    I am sorry do3cc, I owe you this bugfix on Distutils side for months,

    It's already been reviewed so I'll commit it there, and here !

    Thanks again (don't hesitate to send me a mail when an issue lasts for too long in Distutuils)
