I've just checked in a fix. The problem was that the effbot.org pages
contained links that look like download links (because they include
cElementTree-1.0.2-20050302.zip as the last path part), but which are
actually links to a CGI that lets you view the *contents* of the zipfile,
as an HTML page.
The way that EasyInstall was sorting candidate links was causing it to
prefer longer links over shorter ones, assuming that the two links appeared
to be pointing to the same package, version number, and format. I've now
changed it to prefer shorter links over longer ones, assuming all else is
equal. And I've verified that this makes it ignore the effbot.org CGI
links and prefer the real download links.
You can upgrade your EasyInstall using:
this will upgrade you to the latest revision from Subversion.
(Note: Windows users, please use "ez_setup.py setuptools==dev", as
easy_install.exe isn't currently able to updgrade itself without permission
