ez_setup.py and distribute_setup.py

Project description

ez_setup

Problem: setup.py of several Python projects blindly import the setuptools bootstrap module ez_setup.py without realizing that it is usually not installed in the user’s machine. This causes much trouble.

Workaround: Include ez_setup.py (and distribute_setup.py) as a installable Python package so users can do easy_install ez_setup troublesome_package as a workaround.

Note: The ez_setup.py file being distributed is simply a copy of distribute_setup.py from the Distribute project (a setuptools fork); this is to remain compatible with several Python distributors opting to use Distribute instead of Setuptools – examples: Debian, ActiveState, and so on.
