#93 closed defect (fixed)

default package path for python interpreter incompatible with README install test

Launchpad Bug:


The "TESTING THAT IT IS PROPERLY INSTALLED" section of the README specifies that the user should import four modules zfec, foolscap, allmydata.Crypto, and allmydata.interfaces. Contrary to my expectation the interpreter selected the package of the same name from the CWD even though CWD is not specified in my PYTHONPATH environment variable. As a result the test failed. Clearly I misunderstand how the interpreter searches for modules, but perhaps we should warn would-be testers about this pitfall?
