Re: workingenv revisited

Found a wart, figured this was the best place for it :)

If you have a working environment, and you install certain packages, such as roundup, using python setup.py install, the install process places packages in $ENV/lib/python2.4/site-packages instead of directly in $ENV/lib/python2.4 which seems to be the intended place for installed packages when using workingenv.

Quick solution that I used:

Add a sitepackages.pth file to $ENV/lib/python2.4 that has one line:

site-packages

:)
