Another way that easy_install/setuptools gets tested is when projects  
that use it have automated, automatically scheduled tests of their  
install process.

For example, divmod Nevow recently set up an automated test of  
installing Nevow using easy_install.

For example, here is a successful install:


Unfortunately, such tests only test some released version of  
setuptools/easy_install, not the current head version.  It would be  
potentially interesting for such tests of setuptools-using-projects- 
install-and-unit-tests to be run in response to SVN checkins to  
setuptools (triggered by buildbot).
