[New-bugs-announce] [issue15797] bdist_msi does not pass -install/remove flags to install_script

New submission from B Maqueira:

When building an msi package using the --install-script=xx.py, the script "xx.py" is called on msi package install/removal as expected. However the cmd line flags -install/-remove are not passed to the script making it hard to write "step specific" code. 

I experienced this under python 2.7.3 (winXP / distutils 2.7.3, setuptools 0.6c11).

I attach a patch for bdist_msi.py for your consideration.

Kind regards,
