In 141ff17/trunk:

auto_deps: bump to setuptools>=20.3

20.3 is the current version as of today. I'm not really sure what
version we need, but this is better than the previous zetuptoolz "0.6c6"
requirement. Closes ticket:2744.

I think this should depend on a lower version of setuptools that is available as a Debian package.

jessie-backports and stretch have 18.8. Trusty has 3.3, and Vivid has 12.2. cryptography requires >= 11.3. Therefore I think we should require 11.3, so that we can ignore bugs in earlier versions.

In b8ad8878/trunk:

Reduce setuptools dep to >=11.3

We don't necessarily need this ourselves (init.py's version-checking
code is the only thing in tahoe per se that uses setuptools, and our
setup.py's use of setuptools isn't something that install_requires= can
say anything about). But at least one old environment failed because a
sub-dependency needed a newer version than Tahoe asked for. I'm not sure
if this ought to be here, but it may help for a transitional period
until these ancient environments get updated.
