Since the Python CVS has been migrated to Subversion, it's now possible to get fresh setuptools checkouts using EasyInstall. That is, you can use:
How do you set this up? I'd like to do something similar for TurboGears, since the 0.9 release is a bit bigger than the 0.8 release.
Just include an #egg link in your PyPI long_description. Take a look at the setuptools setup.py and setuptools.txt (which is where setup.py reads the long description from).
Alternately, you can just put the #egg link on the download page, since in your case the download page is linked from PyPI. EasyInstall scans the home page and download pages of a project for useful links when you request it.
Note, by the way, that this means as long as you have links on your download page for all the dependency projects, they should be satisfied from there as well, without a need to explicitly reference the download page.
