As of this release, the installation instructions have been changed to
support installation via RPM, .exe (Windows) or "sh
setuptools-whatever.egg". In other words, ez_setup.py is no longer needed
or recommended for user installation of setuptools.
Prior to the final release of setuptools 0.6, I intend to update ez_setup
to do one or both of the following things:
1. It will detect and download the current stable setuptools release from
the Cheeseshop, AND/OR
2. It will instruct the user to visit the cheeseshop page and follow the
installation instructions there.
I'm not sure yet which is the best approach, so I'll probably just do both. :)
I'd like to hear some input, but no "voting" please; just explain your
rationale one way or the other, with detailed information about your
situation/use cases. Thanks!
