What's bizarre is that that's not a valid egg filename; they must
have renamed it at some point.
The filename is invalid in two ways: first, it has a '.' between the
version and the Python version (it should be a '-') and second,
'winxp32' is not a valid platform name.
I would suggest contacting the PyOpenSSL maintainers to find out why
they have renamed it in this fashion; .egg files should never be
renamed under any circumstances.
(I'm actually surprised that easy_install is recognizing it at all,
but basically it appears to be treating it as if it's a
non-platform-specific egg. That's arguably a bug.)
>zipimport.ZipImportError: not a Zip file
This part is an expected failure with a --dry-run. It perhaps could
be fixed, but the problem is that with --dry-run on, the egg is not
moved to the target directory, so when it tries to create a
Distribution object for the installed egg, it fails. This has
nothing to do with the version problem - you will probably see this
occur at the end of any --dry-run install, unless an
identically-named egg was was already present.
