Project description


Not your source.

Because sometimes you mistype filenames or files aren’t where you expect them. Package managers should never punish the user by downloading and running remote code in this case.

This package mitigates the risk and safely exits in the case that you mistype easy_install src or pip install src when no src directory exists.
