I've just tried installing setuptools 0.6a6 so that I could install nose (http://somethingaboutorange.com/mrl/projects/nose/) via easy_install but I've hit a problem.
It looks like cli.exe and gui.exe are not getting installed. To check I manually downloaded both setuptools-0.6a6-py2.4.egg and setuptools-0.6a6-py2.3.egg from the cheeseshop and opened them with a Zip viewer. Sure enough the py2.4 egg contains both exes but the py2.3 one doesn't. Should the py2.3 egg include these files?
Yes it should. I've just released 0.6a7 to fix this. It was mostly a problem in my release build process, which dynamically generated different entry points for 2.3 and 2.4. Unfortunately, using dynamic entry points in setuptools' own setup.py gets into some head-exploding circularities that led to data files not being included in the 2.3 releases. I believe I've fixed this now.
