The 18.3.1 release only has a .tar.gz file on pypi and not the .zip version (.zip is hardcoded in ez_setup.py).
=> can someone upload the .zip version **quickly**?
Ok, the .zip is now there and the issue is fixed.
But... how many people are able to upload such a release? Effectively buildout/ez_setup.py was out for most of a EU business day. "EU business day" corresponds nicely with night rests in USA-like timezones :-)
No problem with mis-firing scripts or night rest of course. My question is if there are no others that could have fixed it? This has been a blocker for most of a (EU) working day and nobody reacted despite four issues (one marked as blocker), mailing to this mailinglist and even mentioning it via twitter. So if there are other people, I want to know how to reach them next time :-)
Additionally, I assume the pypa/setuptools issue tracker is generally the #1 place to mention outages like this?
