A project I'm working on requires a Python egg to be deployed to a remote location which (because of a security configuration outside my control) denies users access to the web-servers we use to load eggs from the office I work.
I've determined that the security at this location allows users access to Windows networked file-systems. It has been proposed that rather than creating a web-repository for python eggs we store these on a local file-server. But from what I can tell the easy_install utility can ONLY load it's eggs from web-servers.
Has anybody had any luck using the --find_options argument to easy_install with a local folder (e.g. on a Windows C: Drive) or a network folder, for example
easy_install --find-links="http://server/egs" myegg==1.0.1 ( that sort of thing works fine )
but what about: easy_install --find-links="c:\myeggs\" myegg==1.0.1
or even: easy_install --find-links="file:///c:/myeggs" myegg==1.01
and with a UNC path: easy_install --find-links="file://///myserver/webapps/eggs/" myegg==1.01
If (as I suspect) easy_install cannot support anything other than a direct-http set-up is there a way for me to simply modify the code for easy_install to do this? Furthermore, since we like to be up to date I dont want to run a permanently forked version of setuptools - can we submit any changes back to the project so we do not have to be permanently forked?
