Richard Jones' Log: Interesting easy_install-related problem
I had a bug report for Roundup recently that the demo broke when using pytz. That's an optional module for Roundup - one of very few as I've strived over the years to keep the external dependencies to a minimum.
It turned out the user in question was running an older version of pytz. Upon upgrading to the latest version the user still has the same problem...
that didn't work for me. Even though the latest version 2006g of pytz installed properly and "import pytz; pytz.VERSION" returned "2006g", when I ran the roundup install it failed. What I discovered is that matplotlib installs an older version of pytz and matplotlib was ahead of pytz in easy_install.pth. Just a head's up in case you get more bugs along this line.
