Paul Moore reported that a Python built in its checkout on Windows has no problem installing, so I’d like to revisit this. The patch was also incomplete: The install module was changed, but people could still call “pysetup run install_dist”, and that command was not touched.
To support this on Unix too, we have to either fix sysconfig (#6087) or override some sysconfig paths in packaging.
I will shoot an email at python-dev. There is no pattern for Lib/site-packages in .hgignore, which makes me think that this issue just never showed up before; I think I need approval before I go ahead.
resolution: fixed ->
stage: committed/rejected -> needs patch
