My setuptools-using colleagues have problems with downloading
setuptools. Initially I suspected the 0.6c12-r12345something releases,
that old release numbers were disappearing. But that's apparently not
the case, even though having such version numbers downloaded by a
standard buildout bootstrap worries me a bit.
I tried using "wget" to download one such release and it also failed. It
would download 95% of the file and then stall...
Pinning setuptools to 06c11 (the latest stable) worked like a charm:
that one downloaded just fine (or was already available in the cache,
Is there something wrong with the peak server? Should I fix something on
our end? (I'm using distribute myself, so I don't have this problem).
