#131 closed task (fixed)

add simplejson source to our distribution

Reported by: warner Owned by: warner
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.6.1
Component: packaging Version: 0.6.0
Keywords: Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


  • step one: talk to the author of simplejson (Bob Ippolito) and convince him to use our ez_setup.py min_version= patch. With this, we can put the simplejson source .tar.gz in our misc/dependencies/ directory and have our 'build-deps' target compile simplejson from source.

Another improvement might be to convince him to add .eggs (for 2.5 mainly) to simplejson's cheeseshop page.

  • Milestone changed from undecided to 0.6.1
  • Owner changed from somebody to warner
  • Version changed from 0.5.1 to 0.6.0

Brian, now that v0.6 is out, and now that I've posted some ez_setup.py patches to distutils-sig [1, 2], could you ask Bob Ippolito about this?

Brian has written to Bob Ippolito, who sounded cautiously amenable to the proposal to use our ez_setup.py hack.
