I feel like these are stupid questions but I cannot seem to find a straight answer.
1) what is egg-info/requires.txt used for? 2) how do I properly define requirements for pypi?
The details are:
I'm updating some packages on pypi and am having difficulty defining requirements.
One of the packages in question is: pypi.python.org/pypi/jsui
I'm initially defining the requirements in a requirements.txt that then gets parsed in setup.py and install_requires gets set to the contents of requirements.txt. Some of the output from python setup.py sdist build is below. The resulting requires.txt in jsui.egg-info is:
However, when I upload this to pypi with "python setup.py sdist upload" I'm not seeing these requirements listed nor does pip installing the package install the requirements.
Thanks for your help.
