Okay? Is that a Zope list or a python one?


In Gmane?

Probably. :)

easy_install lets me specify an egg from svn, e.g.:

$ easy_install

Hm, interesting.  I thought I had seen something like that, but I've
never been able to find documentation for it.  Do you know where this
is documented?  Does this example actually work?

Hanno did some digging and found it was under-documented.

Where is it under documented? :)

though (try it if you'd like).

I will when I make some time.

I agree that something like this would be useful.  I would like to
see the semantics spelled out.  For example, I agree that this should
lead to a develop egg.  What version should it have? Should that
be determined by the remote file?  Is the project you point
to required to have a file?  If so, then why specify a
project name after the #.

I don't know why the # is needed, this is just the way I've seen it spelled before.

I think the default semantic would be that the version would be ==dev i.e. current svn. I don't fully understand how this works though - I know I can do "easy_install PasteScript==dev" to get the current development version of PasteScript, but I don't know how easy_install actually finds that (I presume the cheeseshop tells it about PasteScript's svn location?)

I don't think that in this case it's actually getting it directly
from svn.  But I'm not sure.  If we were having this discussion
on the distutils-sig mailing this, Phillip Eby would have started
explaining it by now. :)
