I've been looking for information on this topic, but cannot really find anything about it.. It looks like setuptools has changed something that breaks a bunch of my installs (last deployed months ago) that were working before.
I have some dependencies on a python package A* which is not available in PyPi, which itself has dependencies not available on PyPi.
A has a setup.py containing:
dependency_links = [
Now... This doesn't work anymore, where it used to work before.
I have found that if I specify the install_requires with an explicit version e.g. django-inline-edit==dev AND the dependency_link with
#egg=django-inline-edit-dev it does work.
My previous experience shows that it was working without the explicit version before, and what I find on the internet also seem to suggest it should work. Has this been changed on purpose, or should it be reported as a bug?
Thanks in advance,
