I had a setup where I had a package "SampleApp". It was installed once
normally (as an egg), version 0.0.0dev_r3284. Then I made a checkout,
and ran "python setup.py develop" on the checkout. easy-install.pth has
/usr/iscape/web/aedemo/src/SampleApp in it, and SampleApp.egg-link
points to the same place (with an egg-info directory and whatnot). It
was working fine.
Then we upgraded to 0.6a10 and the old version became the active
version. Confused me a bit; I ran python setup.py develop and it worked
Actually, now that I think about it, I don't know what easy-install.pth
looked like before I re-ran develop. Hrm... and I lost the output of
the develop command (if it had any useful information). Anyway, I know
it was working before we installed 0.6a10 (whether it should have or
not), and broken after.
Damn installation problems... hard to reproduce. Anyway, data point at
least. If I see it happen again I'll look more closely.
