Description

http://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/install/#installing-development-version is overly complex because you have to deal with paths etc. With the attached tiny patch, steps 3 and 4 become: run python setup.py develop.

Unlike the other setuptools tickets, you don't have to switch to the setuptools way of doing things in order to use it; you can just opportunistically import from setuptools if it's available.

Developers may have setuptools installed because they need a package that requires it. That doesn't mean they prefer it over distutils.

distutils, pip and virtualenv are currently the preferred solutions. See http://www.b-list.org/weblog/2008/dec/14/packaging/ for more background on this issue.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
