[Distutils] Avoid dependency_links / find_links
mailinglists at patrice.ch

We manage our projects with setuptools. For this we have a local PyPi
mirror with just our required packages. This mirror is specified in
our setuptools environments using the index_url directive. The basic
idea is: we don't want to access the internet when installing
packages. Today I had to realized that we haven't been reaching that
goal as Pylons contains a dependency_links pointing to pylonshq.com.
So the question would be: is there any way to avoid following any
dependency_links and/or find_links paths and only use the index_url?
I have quickly checked the setuptools source code and couldn't find
any way to do this. Would a patch be accepted if I implemented that
behavior? Are there other approaches to do what I'm trying to do?
Thanks in advance
