#1504 closed defect (fixed)

allow build ignoring system-installed packages

Reported by: davidsarah Owned by: somebody
Priority: major Milestone: 1.11.0
Component: packaging Version: 1.9.0a1
Keywords: setuptools build Cc:
Launchpad Bug:


We need a way to build ignoring dependencies that are installed in system directories. Ideally, we also need to be able to force use of particular egg(s) or source dist(s), regardless of what is installed. Setting PYTHONPATH doesn't quite work for that, because it doesn't test what setuptools would do if a package were not installed.

  • Milestone changed from undecided to 1.11.0
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Now that we use virtualenvs for builds, we're no longer affected by system-installed packages.
