I used http://pypi.python.org/pypi/osc.recipe.sysegg/ to reliably grab
specific system python packages (PIL, matplotlib, etc). That one is
broken with 1.5.0, as it cannot find PIL and friends anymore.
helps getting everything working (at least temporary).
osc.recipe.sysegg's problem is that a pkg_resources.require(egg) call
doesn't find any of the system eggs anymore. Am I correct that that's
one of buildout's changes? That the recipes are really totally isolated?
One thing I don't understand is why all my buildouts suddenly started
failing: I've pinned zc.buildout in all my buildouts. Did the
couple-months-old bootstrap.py (so: no svn:externals!) somehow manage to
pull in a new buildout despite the version pin?
I had to go through a couple of projects to grab the 1.4 bootstrap.
