Is it possible to convince easy_install to grab extras specified in the "extras_require" arguments to setup()? I know this probably isn't something that should be on by default (that's why they're "extras"), but it would be nice to do something like:
easy_install some_package --also-install-all-available-extras
If it's not currently possible, I'd like to submit this as a feature request.
The syntax that should currently work is:
This is fine (if some extra typing) if you know what those extras are. Is there any way to ask easy_install to display what extras some_package can use?
I'll expand the "package successfully installed" message to list the extras and give an example of how to activate them. This is something project authors should include in their documentation, though, since it may not be obvious what a given extra "foo" does, and there isn't presently any place to describe that in the metadata, either.
