  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset
  • Triage Stage changed from Unreviewed to Design decision needed

What's the motivation for this given that Django used to used setuptools and it eventually caused enough problems that its use was removed in favor of standard distutils (see r3906)? Have things changed? If so it would be good to provide some evidence of that, so that it's clear that doing this doesn't just put us back to where we were three years ago, wanting to switch back to plain distutils.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Distutils is shipped with Python. Setuptools requires downloads from the net to work (or frequent updates of the base file). This isn't worth the pain.
