Hey, Reinout and I have worked on bugs related to zc.buildout support, and it seems that now everything works fine. Thanks for those who try it on their side ! So we will be shipping a 0.6.5 probably friday for that, and postpone all the other issues for 0.6.6, except a few ones that are easy to tackle now. This version will also contaon the code that lakes sure we don't step on any Setuptools 0.7.x toes. If you have one issue you want to see fixed in 0.6.5, speak up. buildouters, if you want to try the latest dev version you can grab : http://python-distribute.org/bootstrap_dev.py Once 0.6.6 is proven to be working fine with zc.buildout, I'll change on zc.buildout side the bootstrap.py script as suggested, by adding a "--distribute" option so people can choose the tool they want to use.

To make it explicit: grabbing this bootstrap and using it is safe for every project. And it is the only change you need to make! - No need for a specific patched buildout release or so. - No need to mention distribute anywhere in your dependencies. - No worries about other buildouts: distribute doesn't touch the setuptools egg in your (shared) buildout eggs directory. They'll continue working just fine. - It just transparently works like a charm :-) When you want the advantages (svn 1.6 support and other bugfixes) of distribute outside of buildout: do the normal "easy_install distribute". 0.6.4 should work fine there (but do of course update when 0.6.5 is out).
