#3796 closed (fixed)

On Windows, Django-0.96's path manipulation thingie sucks.

On Windows, running "easy_install ." inside the unpacked tarball doesn't work. I'd guess all those forward slashes in aren't really a good idea. You might want to stealWborrow from setuptools.find_packages().

So, I'm now running under development mode: I'd like an .egg! I had to import setuptools.setup and go from there: the django.contrib.admin.templates don't get packaged with the .egg I mangled together.

PS: Add a 0.96 version and change this ticket.

The path mangling is someting I'm fixing at the moment.

For eggs, you are on your own. We have stopped supporting setuptools at this point in time.

(In [4912]) Fixed #3338, #3536, #3796 -- Fixed a bunch of setup and build problems in a
portable fashion. That took a *lot* longer to debug than I thought it would, so
let's try not to break it.
