FYI, the handling of homepage and download links is broken. You have
e.g. 'meta="homepage"' instead of 'rel="homepage"', so easy_install
doesn't pick these up and look for links there, meaning that ppix
fails to find downloads for e.g. pywin32 which is hosted at Sourceforge.
(On a perhaps not entirely unrelated note, the Cheeseshop appears to
be down at the moment:
There's been a problem with your request
psycopg.OperationalError: no connection to the server""")
By the way, I'd suggest explaining (or linking to an explanation) on
the ppix main page describing how to configure easy_install such that
the '-i' option isn't necessary. Perhaps we could add an example to
the EasyInstall docs somewhere near:
and then link to it from the ppix page.
