Description

I just checked out the latest version from the SVN trunk [3896] of Django and tried to install with Python 2.5 on Windows XP. It tries to incorrectly download the file http://cheeseshop.python.org/packages/2.5/s/setuptools/setuptools-0.6c1-py2.5.egg which does not exist (throws a urllib2.HTTPError).

Downloading the latest setuptools 0.6c3 and renaming the file to setuptools-0.6c1-py2.5.egg in the setup directory works fine and the installer correctly processes the .egg.

I'd suggest that the installer fetch the directory indext from http://cheeseshop.python.org/packages/2.5/s/setuptools/ and process it for the correct file name, if possible.

/me sighs.

We really need something that's less brittle than setuptools.
