Control: retitle -1 pkg_resources: ‘load_entry_point’ crashes without Setuptools
Control: merge 836710 -1
Control: affects 836710 dput
Control: summary 836710 0

The ‘pkg_resources’ documentation explicitly makes ‘load_entry_point’
available, but the current ‘pkg_resources’ library does not provide
this function in the absence of ‘setuptools’.

This means packages depending on ‘python{,3}-pkg-resources’, and not
‘…-setuptools’, will get a “DistributionNotFound” error from
‘pkg_resources’ when using its ‘load_entry_point’ function.

Reassigning this report with the one already reported against the
‘python-pkg-resources’ package.
